About

This Betil Dagdelen alloy bench is made with powder-coated aluminum pipes, steel, marine rope and upholstery fabric in 2016.

Betil Dagdelen was born in Izmir, Turkey in 1978. She studied political science and international relations at Koç University in Istanbul, graduating with a Bachelor’s degree in 2000. Shortly thereafter, she moved to New York City, where she began working as a production and set designer in the fields of fashion, film, art, and design. She also attended classes on architecture and interior design at Parsons The New School for Design.
In 2009, in addition to her production and set design work, Dagdelen began designing and weaving furniture in a quest to study and understand patterns. She primarily works with Midcentury iron rod chair frames, into which she weaves yarn seats, backs, and armrests, using the furniture’s frame as the loom. Her expert woven patterns are inspired by her life experiences. While she is essentially self-taught, Dagdelen travels frequently for inspiration, even training for a period of time with indigenous communities in New Mexico and Peru. Dagdelen prefers to work with existing materials that have a story to them, and therefore uses yarns created traditionally by both Turkish and Navajo makers.
