BEIRUT DESIGN WEEK DAY 7
Beirut Design Week hits its one week mark! Head to Hamra & Verdun to discover the work that is being showcased. Here are just a few of the many great events taking place.
About 12 years ago, PenguinCube, a creative agency based in Beirut initiated the Pi (promotional item) series with Pi1, a cardboard-based conversation piece and a modest design. The piece received tremendous support and numerous awards, turning the event into an anticipated release each year. Join the team as they host an open house show-casing/marking the release of Pi8!
The Barjis Design shop is passionate about restoring old pieces – whether discovered at antique souk hauls or items bought in by clients – and creating durable, one of a kind designs. Founder Hala Habib will be holding Rythmic City, an open house showcasing how Beirut and climate change are sustained a la Barjis.
HassIdriss is a young creative house specializing in luxury Couture à Porter. Walk through the custom made Garden of Hass and discover their view on what nature will look like if we continue damaging it, as well as enjoy the intricate Spring Summer 16 collection.
