Koray Duman designs a 2,500-volume bookcase in a Williamsburg condo.
“We decided to design a library that wraps the perimeter of the entire apartment with custom shelving at a 45-degree angle,” Duman says. “The angle allows the book collection to be viewed from one direction and hides the collection from the other.” The diagonal created by the shelves provided a pattern extended throughout the space with custom tile, seen here intersecting with the wood flooring, and continuing on into the bathroom. The tiles are four inches wide, to match the width of the wide white oak planks. They are manufactured by Gorbon Tiles, a small company in Turkey that Duman featured at Wanted Design in 2018, when he curated a booth for emerging Turkish designers. – Wendy Goodman, The Cut
