GAIA&GINO founded by Gaye Cevikel
GAIA&GINO, founded by Gaye Cevikel, is now recognized as the main Turkish player and manufacturer on the stage of world design. Aware of the challenge that awaited her (especially after writing a column in the national daily paper from 2000 to 2004 which allowed her to invite designers to speak, to explain their approach and demystify design), she launched GAIA&GINO in 2004-2005, focusing at first only on collaborations with established designers. “The success of my first collection designed by Karim Rashid came from abroad,” she recalls. Today, this visionary presents unique collections at the Milan Furniture Fair and Maison & Objet; the latest of which was critically acclaimed for its stylized lanterns and Hookah pipes modernized by Karim Rashid, Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance and Jaime Hayon. GAIA&GINO is a rising star of Turkish design.
