House of Today is a non-profit organization, committed to cultivating a sustainable design ecosystem in Lebanon, that transcends international borders. For over a decade, the organization’s overarching aim is to strengthen dialogues in the design world, expanding the reach of contemporary Lebanese designers and their creative processes, through mentoring and educating, curating collections and nurturing connections.
Carla Baz pieces are rooted in that elaborate relationship where innovative ideas meet noble materials that are worked by hand. Within that journey to their process, distinctive and unique pieces are born that hold their place in our landscape.
Carla is a French-Lebanese designer with an aspiration for creativity and a surge to explore new techniques and challenges. After studying interior architecture at ESAG Penninghen in Paris, she pursued a Masters in product design for the luxury industry at the University of Art and Design Lausanne (ECAL) where she had the opportunity to work on several projects under the supervision of international designers such as Ronan Bouroullec, BarberOsgerby, Marti Guixé, Pierre Charpin and Umberto and Fernando Campana. She then engaged in diverse professional experiences, working in London for Burberry, Vivienne Westwood and Zaha
Hadid until she felt it was time to explore her own lines.
Inspired by the exceptional heritage of Lebanese craftsmanship, and dedicated to foster synergies between her innovative approach to furniture/lighting and the very accomplished skills of Lebanese artisans, she began an inspiring sequence of experiments which resulted in small editions of her sculptural yet functional furniture.
