House of Today, a non-profit organization committed to fostering Lebanon’s sustainable design culture on a global scale, will showcase the works of established and up and coming Lebanese designers, at Downtown Design in Dubai, from November 9 to 12, 2022.


The awe-inspiring range of commissioned pieces by Lebanese designers will make their debut in an indoor collective exhibition, under the title of ‘Moments of Strength’. This serves as one part of the dual showcase at Downtown Design, complemented by the IOTAoutdoor installation at the entrance of the Pavilion, by multidisciplinary Lebanese designers Karim Tamerji and Elias El Hage


‘Moments of Strength’, curated and organized by House of Today, represents the growing need to narrate the creative and diversity that exist within Lebanon’s contemporary design scene. Accordingly, as part of House of Today’s role to nurture and showcase the works of Lebanese talent on a global scale, Downtown Design serves as an integral platform to interact with diverse audiences. House of Today’s return to Dubai, an emerging regional design capital, reaffirms the organization’s commitment to expand the reach of Lebanese creative forces, to new territories.

New Nature captures the blurred lines of emergence, a moving state where volumes shift, interact and weave together before taking solid shape. The organic movement and juxtapositions of color and form, that in some moments blend and in others contrast, reflect this kinetic motion. 

 

The five-piece series is an ensemble of various high crafts particular to Mexico City, where the collection was produced. El-Mays uses leather, wood, raffia, wicker and, for the first time, ceramics, which brings a hint of surrealism to a collection very much inspired by the lines of Art Nouveau.  

 

As part of an ongoing mentorship that began in 2016, House of Today’s founder, Cherine Magrabi Tayeb, recommended that Khaled explore artisanal ceramic workshops while visiting the Mexican capital, in order to expand his own material knowledge and develop his practice. House of Today is intent on strategizing new ways to nurture Lebanese design culture and support its designers by continuing to actively promote Lebanese contemporary design internationally.
