Fadi Sarieddine’s exhibition at Design Days Dubay 2017, “Damascus Revisited”, features a series of geometries that come together to create pieces with different functions.
For his third consecutive year at Dubai Design Days, Fadi Sarieddine will showcase a furniture line developed as part of a year-long research study. The studio has undergone a research journey that identifies key moments in the early history of Arabic art to identify and understand the root of it’s forms and geometries, in order to explore how Arabic design and architecture would have progressed away from the Arabesque and design trends in the Middle East today.
The exhibition entitled “Damascus Revisited” features a series of geometries that come together to create objects with different functions. As always, Sarieddine brings his playfulness to the table by allowing the end user to create a relationship with their design piece one element at a time. The series follows a process of deconstructing the famous Damascene table by probing the traditional relationship of its brass tray and foldable wooden legs.
