Istanbul (and Constantinople) should be proud of the Zift Design company, which was founded there in 2006. The ABC Shelf, pictured above, is a shelf made for the obsessive compulsive. The grid design has an individual space for every book, organized however you'd like.
Zift Design has come up with a wide range of innovative design ideas since their founding only four years ago. Among their other accomplishments is the Ser Bed, also pictured, which evokes video games and delusions of grandeur.
