Beauty with Purpose
Most 18th, 19th and early 20th century traditional houses in conflict/post conflict zones in the Near East have been destroyed by violence and unchecked real estate development. Preservation efforts are almost non-existent. The journey of our creations often starts in a remote village where we painstakingly search for discarded architectural elements, sometimes in mounds of rubble and reminiscent of a treasure hunt. On paper,we reimagine each find as a lamp, a table, a mirror, a candleholder or a unique decorative item. Our drawings are then carefully translated into timeless creations by the hands of our skilled artisans.
