The innovative founder of the brand that bears her name, Özlem Tuna, was brought up in Turkey and developed her passion for design largely in thanks to her father’s devotion to art history and archaeology. From a childhood she describes as largely centred around mud in the garden and dough in the kitchen, Özlem channelled her skills into studying Fine Art, eventually founding her own brand in 2003. Determined not to have to choose between them, Özlem Tuna offers both jewellery and home accessories. Her unique tableware pieces are crafted in porcelain and ceramic and are so striking, they could be jewellery for your home. Each piece even comes with its own product identity. Today, Özlem continues to dream and create from her atelier in Turkey, each time not seeking to “find solutions by design, but asking by design”.
