Local made™ workshop

My name is Kate Turbina.

My experience in designing dozens of public interiors helped me understand the aims of architects and their need to effectively and quickly decorate locations. With this in mind I became one of the creative designers for the brand ALot which appeared on the pages of the most popular and valuable magazines such as ELLE.DECOR, AD Magazine, Interior+Design in 2022. I designed a collection of office cabins for KIT.WORKS in 2019-2020. Today my target is to set up and develop my own furniture brand in Istanbul - LOCAL MADE ™.
