About Us

onsekiz shop

Onsekiz Ltd was established more than 18 years ago in Cukurcuma, Cihangir – the creativity and antiques centre of Istanbul neighbouring the well-known Taksim Square.

We are known for our reputation as one of the very first addresses of unusual and unique lighting, accessories and furniture.

We aim to provide you with a wide range of vintage, retro, and antique items, mostly from the 1930s to 1970s.  Our products are sourced from places such as ships, factories, film studios, streets and military depots…interesting items that are or were in use in these spaces.  These pieces are exhibited in our showroom in their original conditions, drawing the attention of architects and design professionals for use in their interior and exterior projects, as well as inspiring other buyers including artists, musicians and international dealers seeking unique and interesting items for their homes, cafés, restaurants, offices, theatres, etc.

Onsekiz Ltd owner Selçuk Arıkan, an interior architect, also designs vintage type store signs on metal, wooden, glass and mirror surfaces, made to order.  If there is a need for signs or similar visuals in your projects, some of our work is also in the website for reference.
