The rediscovery of a city when seen through fresh eyes. This console is looking at this heightened expe- rience when you zoom on a detail. You see the picture as a whole but the exciting realm is the analysis of the detail. It represents this feeling experienced during the first visit of Beirut, the importance of paying attention to details to understand the complexity of the city and its story.
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.
