Rochane Art Gallery, Beirut
As designers, I think our creative work should be a result
of an accumulation of the cultural, political, visual and everyday
situations surrounding us.
Translations is a result of my admiration of the art of Arabic
calligraphy, and interest in creating furniture that responds to
our cultural identity in both content and visual aesthetics. The result
was a twist to the known Arabic art of applying holly texts and poetry to
furniture and architectural buildings. I used poetic texts in free style
Arabic calligraphy as an attempt to express in words on objects
of everyday use.
