Merci - Fabrica
Inspired by the level of hospitality and generosity, an object that celebrates this cultural exchange of goods. Giving and receiving is part of the Lebanese behaviour and it is expressed in this generous piece associating the function of a flower vase together with a secret candy box.
A collaboration between an International Design Team and Lebanese artisans Fabrica design a collection of limited edition objects inspired by a trip to Lebanon in January 2013, where the young designers conducted a workshop with the students of ALBA (Académie Libanaise des Beaux-Arts). The collection interprets certain aspects of the Lebanese daily life, uncovering secret, undisclosed elements. Touring the Lebanese capital for a full week, the designers absorbed the visual, technical and aesthetic details that enrich the multi-faceted Lebanese culture. The result is not just a collection of objects, but a unique international vision and interpretation of the Lebanese way of living, mixing past and present and paying homage to the future of an ongoing country. Each designer’s work encapsulates the re-imagining of a distinct, time-honored craft, where the specialized technique of the artisan has formed the basis for the designer’s creations. In fact, the collection is developed following local .traditional techniques and is produced by a team of expert craftsmen in Lebanon.
