As well as organizing numerous concerts and cultural festivals, the Istanbul Arts and Culture Foundation (IKSV) run a design store in the ground floor of their historic building in Sishane. The sleek space showcases the work of both local and international designers and is the place to pick up an angular contemporary Turkish coffee set, or home accessories featuring the works of celebrated Turkish artists such as Bedri Rahmi Eyüboglu. You can also find clothing, bags, and jewelry by both up-and-coming and established Turkish designers, such as Aida Pekin, Ela Cindoruk, and Nazan Pak. It features some exclusive collections, and there's also an online shop if you prefer to shop from the comfort of home. Either way, if you're looking to pick up a souvenir or gift that exemplifies the contemporary side of the city, this is a good bet.
