Najla El Zein
Najla El Zein, graduate of the Ecole Camondo, integrated to Les Arts Décoratifs in Paris, is a designer based in Beirut since 2010. Her objects and spatial installations illustrate tactility, sensations, sincerity and complexity. Najla engages in an almost holistic approach to design by embracing long process thinking, vast experimentation and refined production. Each of her creations are locally and carefully handmade with passionate craftsmen and technologists.
Her work is in search of simple and raw beauties, derived from narratives, materials or simply the experiences it seeks to generate. Najla El Zein was exhibited and published internationally in museums, galleries, publications and fairs such as The Victoria and Albert Museum, Carpenters Workshop Gallery, Beirut Exhibition Center, Singapore Art Fair and the Boghossian Foundation.
