BERGE PANOSSIAN Furniture Design

Berge Panossian is of Armenian descent and has been living in Lebanon for 25 years as a much sought after designer and metal crafts manufacturer. Initially, a jack of all trades, he started off as a machinery and vehicle repairman to later delve into the ornately meticulous world of wax dentistry prosthetics. Combining his hefty industrial skill set with the refined delicate sculpting techniques of wax, Berge married two opposing worlds to stretch the boundaries of yet another: ironwork. He has been in the field of decor for over 20 years. And throughout all those years he dedicated his designs to commissioned replicas of which Giacometti, Lalanne, Poillerat and the Laverne brothers. A couple of years ago, Berge forked into a new path. His own.
