Made by MENDOAbout the books
Who will recognize a great book better than a bookstore? A bookstore run by graphic designers. Here’s why: at MENDO we get market feedback seven days a week, we are blessed to be surrounded by a bunch of talented, inspiring people – photographers, writers and publishers – and after being a bookstore for more than 15 years, we can easily say we know what book aficionados are looking for. Don’t you agree that initiating, creating and realizing jaw-dropping books now, only comes natural?
A MENDO publication is a well-designed book with visually stunning creative content, browsed by people to be amazed and inspired. The subject-matter is one of our pre-defined curated categories, fashion, photography, interior, sport, lifestyle, food and traveling. In general, a MENDO book is a piece of furniture in itself.
Seyhan Özdemir and Sefer Çağlar are names that may not directly ring a bell, but this amazing duo has been around since 2003 and were already awarded Best Young Talents Of The Year 2004 by the magazine Wallpaper*.
Based in Istanbul, Autoban (combining the Turkish word Otoban and the German word Autobahn) is bridging the gap between Asia and Europe with gorgeous furniture pieces and spectacular interiors. Or as Gestalten puts it so beautifully: "Seyhan and Sefer have been creating design at the nexus of Orient and Occident." The concepts for restaurants, hotels, apartments, offices and retail spaces showcase the studio's unique worldview. Book-wise: if you have never heard of Autoban, this cover will not meet your expectation, but for the rest, believe us: it is an interior design classic in the making.
