Profile   Form & Function Follows Sustainability

Gursan Ergil Design Studio is an Istanbul based Design Company who's main objective is to create harmonious and sustainable environments both indoors and outdoors. Our bespoke furniture collection is produced, completely from vintage reclaimed wood and found items. We use reclaimed wood not only to bring out the potency and character of the woods maturity, but because we believe that doing so contributes to reducing the allegations for destroying our forests and damaging our eco-system. Throughout our company we apply ethical business practices such as environmentally friendly and health conscious finishing methods as well as recycling and energy efficiency efforts. Handcrafted in Istanbul, our piece of furniture sold and exhibited throughout the world including an auction at the Christie's NY and Marta-Herford Museum, Germany. Our innovative landscape design philosophy is combining beauty and sustainability, and focusing to create low-maintenance gardens while protecting the environment for the future generations.
Gursan Ergil is an electrical engineer turned landscape and furniture designer, who spent six years living in the United States and studying landscape design, history, and preservation at Harvard University's Arnold Arboretum. Today, based in Istanbul, Turkey, he splits his time between lecturing and writing books on gardens, crafting eco-friendly furniture and designing sustainable landscapes. Ergil is currently working as landscape curator at Prince’s Island Museum in Istanbul as well.

 

It becomes more and more obvious that our well being as individuals as well as modern society depends on how we deal with nature and it’s sources. In today’s globalization, the primary drive for many designers would appear to be commercial success, rather than fostering environmental considerations with ethical responsibility. We participate in an over-consumptive culture and endanger an ecosystem that is changing for the worst rapidly. It is becoming clear that we, designers, must act more environmentally responsive and use design as an important world-saving tool. We need to go beyond the trend of many commercial organizations that are content with simply ‘greening’ their brands, and establish more permanent solutions. We need to stimulate radical change about what our concept of design is so that we can create a strong position in maintaining sustainability. While redefining the role of design in this new world order, we should support direct communication between governments, media, commercial organizations, educational institutions and consumers in order to establish long-term sustainable vision. Our core mission should be making sustainable design a standard practice in all aspects of a human-designed environment, and a pledge to reduce our carbon footprints immediately.
