Georges has been working as an architect and designer for eighteen years. Through his professional experience and intensive workshops he mastered wood furniture making techniques prominent in each of his designs. His passion for design has brought him to teach in many renowned academic institutions in Europe and in the U.S. He recently set up his company “Wood&” in Paris- France working on projects for Europe and the Middle-East.
The presence of wood is always prominent in many of Georges’ designs due to its connectivity its liveliness and texture; Georges Mohasseb, through his experimentation of materials and textures tries to look for the best possible combinations. His constant search for materiality and immateriality characterizes his design approach and gives an identity for every project he develops, be it, architectural, custom, furniture and lighting design projects. Georges’ main concerns is to create a limited number of timeless designs maintaining a high level of craftsmanship and a complex expression of materials through their colors, shape, texture and smell.
