Italian design studio, Fabrica has recently installed an exhibition at the Carwan Gallery in Beirut, which takes inspiration from Middle Eastern craft heritage and contemporary culture.
Called “The Secret Collection,” each design piece in the range stems from a collaboration between an emerging, young designer and a local craftsman, resulting in “a unique international vision and interpretation of the Lebanese way of living, mixing past and present and paying homage to the future of an ongoing country,” explain Fabrica.
