Kundekari is a form of carpentry which marks the highest level of craft found in Classical Turkish interiors, going back a millennium if not longer. It consists of interlocking wooden tongue-and-groove elements which evolved from what was initially a collapsible framework to solid wooden planks incorporated into a fixed scheme. The technique’s traditional role through architectonic character and cultural symbolism provides a perfect fit with the requirements of the Turkish Nationality Room’s design. Kundekari is a disappearing craft. Consequently, its contemporary use is anything but straightforward.
