Regional design practice Studio Nada Debs has collaborated with Lebanese illustrator and storyteller Salim Azzam on a new collection of handcrafted furniture pieces.
The collection, aptly titled ‘Patterns in Nature’, consists of wooden pieces aimed at spreading ecological and ornithological awareness. Combining Debs’ craft technique with Azzam’s narrative, the pieces feature symbols of nature, such as birds and botany.Patterns in Nature follows the success of Debs’ recently released collection, ‘Marquetry Mania’, which explores the handcrafted technique of marquetry by applying the designer’s signature approach to it. Comprising home accessories and furniture with a softer edge, the collection features linear forms and rounded shapes, as well as striking colour combinations and mirror reflections.
While not much has been disclosed about Debs and Azzam’s collection, Patterns in Nature will be displayed at Beirut Design Fair, which runs from 19 September to 22 September, 2019.
Debs recently invited AD Middle East into her lavish Beirut apartment, which reflects the designer’s ‘handmade and heartmade’ approach to her work. Read more here.
