Designer Close-Up: Paratoner The interior designers at four-year-old firm Paratoner hung their shingle in Istanbul’s Tophane neighborhood—the city’s oldest industrial zone—amid a slew of art galleries, dilapidated wooden houses, and small workshops. From its design studio located directly above a street-level showroom, the group makes furniture and lighting that are chunky and colorful, clean-cut but voluptuous. Make sure to watch the stop-motion furniture animations they produce, including one featuring a marauding gang of Rubic table lamps in natural oak and epoxy lacquer.
