Join us on May 20th starting 12 PM for the launch of L’Artisan du Liban installation at Sursock during Beirut Design Week

On this occasion, l’Artisan du Liban will exhibit a design installation in collaboration with Lebanese artisans, featuring designer Ghassan Salameh & glass artisan Atelier Céline Hage. In this collaboration, ADL invites the Lebanese artisans into an encounter with a young designer and a new generation artisan.
A conversation between designer Ghassan Salameh and L’Artisan du Liban’s artistic director Maya Eid
This discussion will examine the impact of socially motivated design, through the work of L’Artisan du Liban since its creation in 1979 and the effects of such efforts on the lives of artisans, who are active shapers of the cultural identity, the main source of inspiration for designers.
Meet our Partners for Beirut Design Week 2017

IED – Istituto Europeo di Design is an international network operating in the fields of education and research in Italy, Spain and Brazil. IED Design, IED Fashion, IED Visual Arts and IED Communication are the four departments present in each IED location, united by the common denominator of design culture.
IED teaching methods require that the departments forge strong bonds with the local industry; interface with their benchmark sectors, interact with each other and evolve accordingly. For these reasons, rather than just keeping in step with their times, the IED training courses are often thriving trend anticipators. IED represents an innovation hub where professionals from a variety of backgrounds gather to provide the input for a cross-fertilisation between areas and disciplines. IED forms a truly unique network of encounters, experiences, people and cultures. The outcome is excellence.
