Tabanlıoğlu Architects has created Thru to celebrate TEPTA’s 25th anniversary at the Istanbul Museum of Modern Art

Istanbul-based architectural firm Tabanlıoğlu Architects has unveiled Thru, an installation commissioned by lighting specialist TEPTA to celebrate its 25th anniversary. The collection was launched at the Istanbul Museum of Modern Art as part of Day, Light, Night, the first exhibition in Turkey to focus exclusively on lighting.

In collaboration with lighting and furniture atelier Aqua CreationsThru concentrates on the visual and reflective aspects, encouraging visitors to experience numerous perspectives through shifting streams of altering light and reflections. Designed as a compact 3.5 x 4.5m cube with 17 mirrored and 10 translucent silk panels hanging suspended and fractured throughout the space as though floating, Thru is a labyrinth to walk within and through.

Inspired by the reflective capacity of a mirror to create numerous perspectives, Tabanlıoğlu Architects intends Thru to capture the viewer's imagination via a mix of visual play, reflection and diffusion. 

Thru benefits from the lightness of the silk and the generative capacity of the mirrors. They establish a labyrinth, guiding the visitor towards the source of illumination. A simple and serene way to complement light,” says Melkan Gürsel, partner at Tabanlıoğlu Architects.
