Maison et Objet Honors Rising Talents from Lebanon this September

Salone del Mobile has just ended, but our minds are already set in September and what’s going to happen when Maison & Objet opens its doors once again!

The year opened with an amazing trade show, and we can’t wait to live it all over again. Maison et Objet – September edition – is four months away, but the news of what we can expect are already starting to surface the web. Both September’s Designer of the Year and Rising Talents have been announced by Maison & Objet a couple of weeks back, and we have got the feeling this is going to be yet another great edition of the interior design show.

For now, let’s get to know the Lebanon-based Rising Talents that are going to be honored from the 7th until the 11th of September in Paris, Nord Villepinte.

After having awarded some of the best up and coming artists from the UK and Italy, the time to honor Lebanon and its booming design frame has come. As Maison & Objet stated earlier in their Press Release, “the event is placed under the patronage of Rabih Kayrouz, whose fashion label has immensely contributed to the worldwide popularity of the Lebanese style over the years.”

Who’s sitting the Jury?

Seven Lebanon-based personalities have been invited to sit on the Selection Jury. What do they all have in common? They all have contributed to the revival of the Lebanese design scene over the years.

Rising Talents

Carlo Massoud, Marc Dibeh, Carla Baz, Anastasia Nysten, Studio Caramel and Paola Sakr are the designers who will be awared the Rising Talents Award in Paris in September. Today we are getting to know them a little bit better and what made them the final six and the deserved recipients of this award.

Carlo Massoud

Having graduated from the Lebanese Academy of Fine Arts and ECAL Lausanne, Carlo Massoud went to New York to gain some expertise on his field. It was in 2014 that the Rising Talent went solo, when he showed his Dolls project at the Carwan Gallery.

Marc Dibeh

With a French academic background, Marc Dibeh returned to Beirut to pursue a Master’s in product design at the Lebanese Academy of Fine Arts. The young designer worked with designer Marc Baroud for three years before going solo. Dibeh considers storytelling to be one of the most important aspects of his work, saying that his pieces “tell stories about different aspects of my life, situations I have encountered or some of my personality traits, such as my clumsiness.”

Carla Baz

With both Lebanese and French roots, Carla Baz studied in France before she went on to working with Zaha Hadid Architects before going solo. Her work is known for its elegant lines, which are a bit reminiscent of the work she did for fashion houses Burberry and Vivienne Westwood.

Anastasia Nysten

Anastasia Nysten was raised between Lebanon, France, and Finland, having decided to pursue her degree in industrial design in Beirut, at the Lebanese Academy of Fine Arts. Before starting to work solo, Nysten worked Michael Anastassiades in London. Her life experience allowed her to put that into her designs, that mirror her multicultural background.

Studio Caramel

Founded by Karl Chucri and Rami Boushdid, Studio Caramel works to create pieces shaped by a specific context. Their work suggests a nostalgia of the 1950s and “and a style that associates a taste for vintage details and historical references.

Paola Sakr

An academic designer, Paola Sakr’s work encompasses much more than that, hinting at notes of photography and art. Each work developed by the designer has its own story. For example, “Impermanence, a series of vases, is a testament to a pile of concrete cylinders she found one day on the edge of a construction site.
