    Ocean Aqua is a design of Erbil’s son, Anka Tezcan. Under the tutelage and guidance of his father, Anka re-imagined the ripples on the surface of natural bodies of water into a rug design. As Erbil used to free dive in his leisure time and Anka currently participates in triathlon races, descending into a body of water with focus and determination is a meditative practice for both of them. Anka wanted to translate the way water opens up, and welcomes you into its world, through this multidimensional design that mimics the symbiotic movement of our human form in water.
