The “Breek”, designed for the Sursock Museum Store, derives from its ancestral Phoenician shape and brings together two of Lebanon’s traditional craftsmanship techniques: glass blowing and stone carving.

The carefully hand blown borosilicate glass piece can withstand temperatures of 800º C and holds more than 1L. It sits on a carved Marble or Terrazzo base which holds ice, keeping it cool while collecting dripping water.

 

The union of these materials, the frail, the firm and the strong, is a tribute to our history from which the present rises. 1/3 - 2/3 as they say, Pour the “ARAK”, tint it with water and enjoy the day!

Breek

Our Tea Carafe derives its form from a tea leaf. Composed of two parts, the glass acts as recipient for the ice tea while the marble base can be filled with water and put in the freezer. Once served, it will maintain its cold temperature.

Moodi

As the evening goes by, the diminishing oil burning throughout the night makes for an ever dimming light.

Moodi lights borrow from the often ornamented Phoenician oil lamps. 

Moodi’s walnut wood base has a built-in dimmer making it an instant mood setter. With an instinctive turn, the light dims in either direction to suit the atmosphere.

Produced in collaboration with Materials Labs, Moodi’s casing protects the light source from potential damage making it easier to carry around and fit into position. As it reveals the “khayzaran” embroidery developed with digital means and made possible through robotic help, it shelters the eye from the LED glow. This stitching is parametric and adaptive to the shape it populates while respecting the fundamental rules that govern it.

Moodi’s built in and all encased mechanisms allow for a natural and instinctive use wile being lightweight, heat free, efficient and safe.
