The ability of combining reality and fantasy in a provocative yet glamorous way while preserving the eternal aspect of the design.
working on integrating the Middle Eastern and specially the Lebanese knowhow and spirit in the recipe of each of my product, collaborating with craftsmen, using traditional carving and marquetry on rough solid materials like wood, metals and stones, seeking to spread the marriage between tradition and new technologies, keeping my entire identity which is a chaos mixing craziness to sobriety maybe a weird contradiction and combination but, this is my signature.
I believe design should be minimalistic, simple, bold, and straight forward with this touch of fantasy that I already talked about, particularly because it is something innate in my character, while merging the experimental dimension with a professional knowledge.
I try always to incorporate a fresh approach sticking to my culture and tradition, using technology and methodology, perception and spaces, sometimes in a chaotic process but with a very neat sharp result not following any specific period or trend but a reflection to my own image.
Here is "BLEEDING SOUL"
“Before you embark on a journey of revenge, dig two graves” this is the aphorism behind the concept of BLEEDING SOUL, The philosophical and dramatic perception is, as if somebody’s revenge is recurring toward them since the mirror is nothing but their own reflection, and so they get hurt deep in the heart.
For the architectural conception and the functionality, “bleeding soul” is a rectangular freestanding mirror made of waxed finished walnut wooden frame with 3 rough metallic nails turned to give the desired shape in this case; an augmented nail size .altogether engraved on the left side of the mirror used as coat hangers, underneath of each nail a removable drop of blood made of resin on a magnetic metallic sheet emphasizing the main idea.
On the back side of the product, the nails goes through a white lacquered metal panel and become united as one entity creating the tripod for the stability of the design.
