Nestled along the enchanting Karakoy waterfront, where the Bosporus and the Golden Horn converge, perches the Istanbul Modern—an architectural marvel which stands in harmony with the scenic beauty of Turkey’s artistic heart.
Designed by the visionary Renzo Piano, founder of Renzo Piano Building Workshop, Turkey’s first museum of modern and contemporary art has become a city landmark which welcomes global art enthusiasts into a space that transcends the boundaries of beauty and art.
Established in 2004 within a former customs warehouse, Istanbul Modern underwent a transformative renaissance under Renzo Piano’s careful guidance, setting the stage for the Renzo Piano Building Workshop’s Turkish debut. The museum spans 10,500 sqm across five levels, its architectural poetry seamlessly blending Ottoman-era buildings, the Bosporus, and vast glass windows that dissolve conventional spatial constraints.
Acclaimed Italian furniture design brand Pedrali takes centre stage inside this artistic haven.
Venturing outdoors, Istanbul Modern unveils a 650 sqm panoramic terrace which seems to float dreamily over the sparkling waters below. CMP Design’s Nolita and Tribeca take the lead here, allowing Pedrali to create a comfortable oasis from which to absorb the breathtaking panoramic views.
Pedrali’s collaboration with Istanbul Modern unfolds as a symphony of artistry, where every piece – indoor and outdoor – becomes a brushstroke on the canvas of Turkey’s city iconography. It’s a testament to Pedrali’s enduring dedication to crafting contemporary furniture that seamlessly integrates with the aesthetics of cultural icons, furthering Pedrali’s guiding principles of beauty, tradition and innovation.
