Faceted Skull Clear Small
Design by Ali Bakova
Memento Mori, from the Latin ‘Remember you will die’, is less a doom-laden prophecy, but instead an inducement to live every day to the full, as if it might be your last.
A reflection on life’s inevitable end, the NUDE Memento Mori collection takes a modern approach to the medieval mantra. Created by the Istanbul-based designer, Ali Bakova, this small skull-shaped ornament is cut from clear lead-free crystal with facets that explode in luminosity. The precise harmony of this piece culminates in a sculptural aesthetic —at once functional and artistic.

Turkish industrial designer Ali Bakova works from a studio in the large industrial zone of Istanbul’s business district, Maslak, where creative offices and auto repair shops – designers and industry – live side-byside. In 2015, Bakova, who is also one of the city’s most respected design educators, co-curated an exhibition entitled Atölye Maslak Maker Culture during which the small-scale production of artistic and artisanal objects was conducted on-site, using 3D printers. Bakova’s work can be playful – he may fashion a cat from Iznik tiles or a wooden chair taking its cues from the iconic Galata Bridge – but it also focuses on purity, what is essential and smart functionality.
