Şakir Gökçebağ

Şakir Gökçebağ with Trans Layers 1, 2010. Wall-installation, 375x650x10cm.

With this week's many disruptions, I'm sorry to say that I've yet to put together a new Designer of the Month series. But as November has 5 Fridays, with any luck, I should just be postponing it a week. And really, this should count as good news, because I'm very happy to be able to share the fantastic work of Şakir Gökçebağ with you all today instead.

 Plenum, 2007. Installation, 385x385x8cm.

Toccata & Fugue, 2011. Installation, 605x820x50cm.

Gökçebağ's Trans Layers works have been making the rounds on such blogs as The Design Ark and BOOOOOOOM lately, and for very good reason. These whimsical, mono-chromatic installations, created from rolls of toilet paper, are remarkably beautiful. And if you spend some time searching through Gökçebağ's website, you'll find many more installations and series that are equally as gorgeous. See for yourself, right here.
