Myriad - Ghaith&Jad
Myriad was inspired by the resilience and ritual of traditional life, the raw texture of undyed wool can be spread out as carpet, or suspended from the wall. When wrapped around its canister, the fabric gains volume and weight and takes on a contemporary form, becoming a seat or headrest, responding to the body at ease. Felted, quilted, cut, cast and polished, the piece’s materiality reflects centuries of local craftsmanship. Ghaith&Jad’s object marries the mysterious with the utilitarian, inviting an encounter both visual and tactile. A union of historic craftsmanship and contemporary design, this object defies single definition: at once architectural and ambiguous, hard and supple, protective and inviting—a body of both bone and fat.
