Design Foundation is located in Bodrum, Turkey and was established by Faruk Malhan founder of Koleksiyon, which has an unrivalled reputation for delivering design and service excellence to clients since 1972. The Foundation organises events integrating creative industries and creative economies. It aspires to raise awareness for local, universal and environmental values.
Through Design Workshop studies, Design Foundation grants theoretical and experimental references within the disciplines of design, arts, crafts, architecture and governance. Design Workshops; is a human-centered project aiming for designs which will embody experientiality, conceptuality and contextuality, integrating with values habituated by its place. Design Workshops do not perform object-oriented studies; the values and the contexts of the object are articulated; rather than producing goods, it aims for creating product, service, experience, inspiration, culture and value-added employment.
