Levent Penso


Born in Istanbul in 1953, he graduated from Saint Michel High School and then began studying economics. However, he left his economics studies unfinished and went to Oxford to continue education. After returning a year later, he joined the family-owned Pakiş Plastik, which produced outsourced manufacturing for car factories. Here, they designed automobile accessories, parts, and even redesigned cars in a timeless fashion. In 1985, pursuing his biggest hobby, interior design, and decoration, he opened his own office. They also transformed the family's 5,000 square meter plastic factory in Çağlayan into a store under the "Home Store" brand. They offered various products to customers, ranging from furniture to accessories, fabrics to wallpaper, dried flowers to souvenirs. They manufactured the products they designed in a factory established in a 4,000 square meter adjacent building. This factory housed various departments such as furniture, finishing, sculpture, painting, wrought iron and metalwork, upholstery accessories and furniture, wood carving, and marquetry, employing a team of 250 people including architects, artists, and furniture makers. They introduced many imported products to the Turkish market for the first time and collaborated on the interior design of prominent families' homes and workplaces.
