Creativity is a set of skills that allow an individual to produce something that’s both novel [original] and task-appropriate [useful].
Collectivity is orchestrating ideas with each of its individuals bringing a unique skill to the table
Kollektivist is a platform that curates contemporary designers, where the collaboration meets timeless staple of fine craftsmanship and affordable design as a common target, created by Ece Kavlak Kefalaki.
The aim of Kollektivist is to curate and share the unique and innovative visions of young designers mainly based in Istanbul but also other cities. All the labels under Kollektiv are the blend of different worlds – the crossing of different aspects from traditions to complex ethnicities. The carefully selected brands have their own stories yet the common foundation is clean lines and ample use of natural materials.
The founder is continuously seeking for exclusive pieces which juxtapose old and new, whilst still showing a concern for local traditions and artistic processes. The need brought Kollektivist into life, where similar soulmates can unite.
It is wonderful to experience the work of young designers, who are questioning the extant trends and replacing them with unique identities.
