THE SOUNDS OF HAMMER IN SILVER AND INTERPRETATION OF ESTHETICAL FUNCTIONALISM Today, designers in many different areas have been pushing the boundaries of the concept of designing very hard by creating beautiful work of arts.One of these designers H.Ibrahim ALTIN who is also the founder of “GALERI TASARIM” gives life to silver.You may think that he is designing silver wear artifacts which is very popular in these days; however, when you visit “Galeri tasarim” you will come across and extraordinary and unique designs of silver works of art. H.İbrahim Altin is representing the third generation of hard work and experience which started 75 years ago, and reflects the art in the forms of space, prints of nature, functionality and ergonomic. Industrial designer Altin strives to maximize the usage of materials.Constantly researching, Altın, brings his accumulated experience to life by using paper or aluminium boards as prototypes and later shapes these prototypes by using 98-99% hand made silver plates.As a result of this creative design; the outcome is a magnificent work of art which silver is used in a natural way.One important reminder is that each design consists of 7 or 8 reproductions only. “Beautiful art should touch an individual in away that is both universal yet somehow unique. It is this “uniqueness” that distinguishes one artist from another.It is like a finger print, becomes a part of your identity.The feeling of cerating a work of art, and later that work being shared and appreciated by the viewer, gives an artist such a great pleasure” says H.Ibrahim Altin. Galeri Tasarım is the special place where interior designers and architects often visit and at the same time, it is the first gallery that “designed silver artifacts” are exhibited.It is a must to visit his Galeri Tasarim where all hand made silver artifacts are shaped with long hours of hard work and final work is signed with his high spirit.
