PIXEL FOR THOUGHT Animation Design

Pixel For Thought is a small design and animation studio. Ayman is a 3D character who ran away from his land and got stuck in our world. In an attempt to hide his identity, he creates and animates 2D and 3D characters, and spends his time upgrading his laptop features in hope to re-create the portal. Ali is a music composer and director who spends his time simulating water on his computer because it is never available in his house, with Hans Zimmer music dramatically playing in the background. Dina is a graphic designer wannabe illustrator who, when assigned multiple projects, proves she can multitask by watching Seinfeld and The Amazing World of Gumball at the same time. These three individuals can however channel their overflowing powers and turn ideas into unique and creative projects. From an awareness campaign to an animated short, they can visualize a story for each one of your ideas.

PLATAU Architecture and Urban Design

Our proposal is experimentation with the properties of the rattan. Rattan is a light material that can gather strength by bending and by grouping several stems together. The idea here is to create with the rattan stem a loop that will, by bending around itself, achieve the needed strength to create a chair’s basic profile. We then connect one stem to the next creating a continuous loop that will create the chair. Furthermore, more loops can follow with different profiles to create an extendable seat that can go from chair to bench to stool. Rattan chair. l 86.1cm x d 56cm x h 74.6cm BASED IN BEIRUT: COLLECTIVE EXHIBITION OF INDEPENDENT DESIGNERS As every year the MENA Design Research Center, selects up to 15 newcomers and young designers to promote as one of its main exhibitions of the year.
