Rising Talent Awards: Lebanon chosen for the September edition

Return to pre-industrial crafts. Lebanon brings its emerging talents to the September 2018 edition of Maison et Objet.

Il design libanese si distingue per “una molteplicità delle sue influenze. Qui non c’è nessuna dominante culturale, nessun patrimonio industriale, e quindi nessuna “ideologia” funzionale, formale o di altro genere. Il che crea uno spazio di libertà piuttosto interessante”, sostiene il giurato Marc Baroud. La parola chiave è l'artigianalità piuttosto e non l’industrialità”. Hala Mubaraka,vanta i talenti: “Le conoscenze ancestrali che non si sono mai perse, unite ai concept contemporanei, collocano i creatori libanesi in prima fila sul palcoscenico globale. L'estetica raffinata, le linee pulite e la ricerca di materiali nobili sono oggi le linee guida di questo design che inizia a farsi riconoscere per la sua identità”.  Carlo Massoud, Marc Dibeh, Carla Baz, Anastasia Nysten, Studio Caramel e Paola Sakr: ecco i nomi di coloro che incarnano il rinnovamento del design in Libano, selezionati dai membri della giuria dei Rising Talent Awards. Una nuova generazione che ha seguito l'esempio dei suoi predecessori combinando le loro esperienze internazionali con metodi di produzione locali, espressione di unicità.
