The Wish Machine by Autoban

Turkey’s contribution to the 1st London Design Biennale featuring projects from over thirty countries, presents ‘The 
Wish Machine’, a project designed by Autoban.

Taking direct inspiration from the ‘wish-tree’ a
cultural tradition deeply rooted in the ancient Anatolian faith; this interactive machine works by
sending the papers on which visitors will write their wishes into an unknown destination, through
a pneumatic system. Autoban has worked in an interdisciplinary and collective setting with
different expertise for the installation that is custom designed for the biennale space: a century-
long, well-known system with a surprising new form and function.


Coordinated by the Istanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts (İKSV)
London Design Biennale is between 7-27 September at West Wing G1A, Somerset House.
