BORNN takes a contemporary and innovative approach to classic enamelware and aims to produce a wide selection of luxury tableware with artisanal touches.
BORNN was founded in 2015 by two sisters Basak Onay and Oyku Thurston who both have backgrounds in creative industries. When they were global nomads growing up in Tokyo, Barcelona and Los Angeles away from their home town of Istanbul, they were exposed to different cultures and craftsmanship, which aspired them to create their own company that brings together years of developed skills and local heritage.
BORNN takes its inspiration from the fascinating history of enamelware and by using traditional manufacturing techniques, aims to produce modern, unique and handcrafted pieces to help keep these skills alive. All of their collections are produced in Istanbul by master artisans and we seek to empower the community by developing new ways for them to use their years gained knowledge.
Enamelware is a time-honored and time-consuming process made by fusing glass onto heavy-gauge steel. Raw steel bodies are machine mulled or hand-formed, glazed and then kiln-fired to create a smooth surface. They fire the products using a traditional kiln which creates very high firing temperatures. Depending on where an individual item is placed in the kiln, the degree impacts the colour intensity of the product giving each design a unique beauty and a point of difference.
Every luxury tableware piece is hand made individually. The patterns differ on each item showing the marks of its journey. We see these differences as something special that gives their modern tableware a unique character to be enjoyed over time.
