The designer Ali Bakova lives in Istanbul, where his studio is in the large industrial complex of Maslak. It’s an unusual area, where the creative industries and car repair shops happily coexist. In 2015, Ali Bakova co-curated an exhibition there, Atolye Maslak Maker Culture, in which small-scale production of art-craft pieces were carried out on-site with 3D printers. He is also a leading light of design education in Istanbul. Ali Bakova can be playful , creating a cat from Iznik tiles, or a wooden chair inspired by the Galata Bridge. For Nude, however, he is interested in creating pure design for functional use.

Nude is a Turkish company that specializes in collaborations with up and coming artists and designers. Featuring non-leaded glass, the company has received numerous design awards.  A decidedly modern company, Nude produces quality work as both accent and functional barware/glassware for the home or professional environment.
