SAYAR&GARIBEH Product Design

We are Sayar (Stephanie) and Garibeh (Charbel), a young couple design team. We met in our first college year, and got into the design world ever since. We recently opened our small workshop in Beirut, aiming to create simple yet experimental designs, with a dash of humor, using new materials and forms. We work together as a team where each one has his/her own touch and thoughts combined together to create unique pieces. 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. Sayar&Garibeh has been selected in BDW2015 to be one of those exhibitors.

SCHIZZO GALLERY Design Art Gallery

Schizzo is a design art gallery created by interior architect Léda Keuchguérian and sculptor Raffi Tokatlian. Schizzo suggests furniture and decorative objects designed by Léda and Raffi and hand-made in Lebanon by a dedicated team of artisans. Both artists’ works carry an intellectual and emotional sensibility alongside a high dose of modern beauty, infusing aesthetic ideals into objects that might never have been viewed as art. Yet, most items are limited edition, generally available in a dozen of copies securing originality of the object. Along with the founders’ works, Schizzo is also the home of young artists, painters and designers. HARUR AT SCHIZZO EXHIBITION Schizzo gallery, in collaboration with AGBU, will launch an exhibition of limited edition creations exclusively designed for the Armenian Genocide Centennial. Guvder, Bernard Khoury, Léda Keuchguérian, Raffi Tokatlian, Delphine Markarian, Sarah Melki & Jean-Paul Karadjian and Vahram Najjar-Aghazarian have come together at HARUR for the sole purpose of providing hope of survival through art.
