Concept

Atypical strives to re-imagine the functions of classic Lebanese objects and crafts, adorned with minimalist metal structure that redefine their primary use. Through unexpected combinations and apparent joinery, the reading chair and 3 lamps that where conceived from this approach play with the notions of identity and adaptation. The objects continuously move from nostalgia to the present and invite us to see our daily environment though a different lens.
