Carwan Gallery is a leading international contemporary design gallery with a focus on promoting and producing cutting-edge collectible design from the Near East region and beyond. 

Under the direction of Nicolas Bellavance-Lecompte and Quentin Moyse, both architects and creative entrepreneurs, the gallery develops exceptional cross-cultural collaborations that call attention to the region's most compelling contemporary material culture. Carwan employs a comprehensive design approach via the plurality of its collaborations between architects, artists and designers, prompting a vital and rich exchange of ideas, influences, concepts and know-how.

Founded in 2011 in Beirut Lebanon, Carwan places an emphasis on developing strong collaborations with cultural organisations, institutions, specialised press, collectors and patrons. The gallery has been invited to showcase its exhibitions at the most important art and design fairs in Dubai, Basel, London, New York and Miami, and has curated design exhibitions at numerous museums and art centers. Thanks to its highly successful and critically acclaimed work, Carwan is considered a key player amongst the most important contemporary design galleries in the world. 

After nearly a decade of activities in Beirut, Lebanon and its participation in more than 50 international exhibitions, the gallery has relocated in Athens, Greece in September 2020 in the area of the port of Piraeus.
