ELEVATE | THE QUEST FOR HEIGHTENED SENSES

December 12-28, 2018 - 3 Beirut, Downtown

ELEVATE, the Quest for Heightened Senses curated by its founder Cherine Magrabi opens in Beirut with a showcase of talented Lebanese designers & creatives to elevate the norms, using their own design aesthetic to create tables that not only serve a function or purpose, but that trigger emotions through a journey of sensorial experience.

On this occasion, House of Today partnered with New York’s prestigious international gallery R & Company to pair three of their designers with three Lebanese designers to conceive a table together. The pairings are Haas Brothers X Carlo & Mary-Lynn Massoud and Katie Stout X Sayar & Garibeh.
A new exhibition shop concept was launched this year rolling out the successful partnership with WallpaperSTORE* started in the 2016 Biennale, in addition to the curated exhibition. This special collaboration between partners outlines their joint commitment to nurture and showcase internationally the strong design talent found in Lebanon. The exhibition shop features a combination of new commissioned exclusive objects to Lebanese designers and existing iconic WallpaperSTORE* objects from international designers.
