Autoban has teamed up with De La Espada to create a new furniture line, Autoban Built by De La Espada. Select designs from Autoban's ever-growing product portfolio are built in De La Espada factories in Spain and Portugal, and are available in De La Espada's signature material range including solid American Black Walnut or American White Oak.

Autoban Built by De La Espada combines the best qualities of the two collaborating design firms for a range of furniture that is clever, fresh and exciting while strongly rooted in traditional craft and the integrity of a lifetime of experience.

In 2003, Seyhan and Sefer founded Autoban, an interior design and product studio that has been gaining widespread recognition and receiving design awards around the world.

Ozdemir & Caglar

Seyhan ÷zdemir (b. 1975) and Sefer Cağlar (b. 1973) met at the Fine Arts Faculty of Mimar Sinan University, where Seyhan was studying Architecture and Sefer, Interior Design. They both graduated in 1998 and founded Autoban in 2003 after gaining experience in the field to combine their fields of architecture, interior design, and product development under one name. The duo began developing product designs and launched their first collection in Paris in 2004. Two years later they opened the Autoban Gallery to showcase the best of these designs. The next year, they began their collaboration with De La Espada to produce their products, while maintaining creative control.
De La Espada was founded by Luis De Oliveira and Fatima De La Espada in 1993. Hailing from Porto and Madrid respectively and educated in London, the founders opened the first De La Espada store in London in 1996, when there was comparatively little quality contemporary furniture in the city. De La Espada's dedicated factory in Portugal specializes in hand crafted traditional construction methods to create modern furniture with timeless appeal and the warmth of solid wood. The De La Espada aesthetic evolved from influences including the Arts and Crafts movement, architects such as Tadao Ando, John Pawson and Alvaro Siza, as well as Scandinavian design from the 1950ís.
