About Karaköy Junk

Hi, I’m Asli, a soul full of passion and curiosity.

So it is not a surprise that Junk is a product of travel and passion. My collection is not just made of vintage, it also feeds from exhibitions, museums, flea markets, auctions, galleries, homes, streets and alike…  I’m never able to explain what I’m collecting. Continuously flowing in between various objects, decades and trends depending on my mood, and somehow always coming back to ‘now’ when I start to feel lost. Junk is also such a shop. Wild mood swings, mind always confused and existence for fun. Holding on to the trends while trying not to give a f..k about life, and curating instinctively…

What I like the most: Art and design. That’s why I spend the most of the time, thinking, reading, listening, watching, travelling, probing.. I guess that explains why I am always so keen to add new designs, lights and neons in Junk.

What would I want the most? To inspire and be inspired…
