In addition to the exhibition, in 2016 House of Today launched The SHOP, an offering of home and office products in collaboration with  WallpaperSTORE* and guest curator Nicolas Bellavance-Lecompte. This special collaboration between 3 partners outlines their joint commitment to nurture and showcase internationally the strong design talents found in Lebanon.
The exhibition shop features a combination of new commissioned objects to Lebanese designers and existing iconic WallpaperSTORE* objects from international designers. Following the exhibition shop at Le Yacht Club Beirut, the new objects will permanently be part of the WallpaperSTORE* and available for online purchase worldwide.

Carlo Massoud

Lebanese product and interior designer Carlo Massoud was born in Beirut in 1984. He studied at the Académie Libanaise Des Beaux Arts (ALBA) in Beirut, earning a Master’s degree in industrial design in 2008. He went on to earn a Master’s degree in luxury and craftsmanship from École cantonale d'art de Lausanne (ECAL) in Switzerland in 2010.  From 2011 to 2013, Massoud worked with Nasser Nakib architect in New York, specializing in high-end residential projects. In 2013, he established his eponymous studio in Beirut.

Massoud’s designs are consistently inspired by his political or cultural critiques, which he transforms into useful—and frequently thought-provoking—objects. Projects range from tableware and packaging to exhibition stands, bespoke furniture, and interior spaces. According to the designer, “Nowadays, to create an object of desire, you need: A) a good story B) a combination of technology and craftsmanship C) experiment and push the boundaries of materials.”

Massoud’s work has been exhibited at numerous international design and art fairs, including, but not limited to: Art Factum Gallery (Beirut, 2014), Carwan Gallery (Beirut Design Week, 2014), Southern Guild (Cape Town, 2015), The Armory Show (New York, 2015-2016), and Skoufa Gallery (Mykonos, 2015).
