Gaspar is a restaurant located in a building in Karakoy which was a printing house for nearly a century. Designed by Autoban, the interior reinterprets the comfort of a classic bistro, using humble materials inspired by the streets of Karakoy. The design references the concept of "Cabinet of Curiosities", an idea which flourished in Europe during the 16th century. A collection of interesting and thought provoking "types of objects whose categorical boundaries are yet to be defined" are arranged using the "Knolling" method - grouping the objects in parallel and at right angles as visualised through the plywood surfaces throughout the space. Sledge Blind-Tufted, designed by Autoban and manufactured by De La Espada, is used in the lounge area next to the dining room.
