Beirut Design Week 2017


Exclusively for Beirut Design Week's theme ‘Is design a need?’, the studio showcased a selection of found trolleys from the streets of Beirut - each created and designed by their owners to collect and recycle debris. These trolley designs were award winning in themselves. The studio’s philosophy is on embracing the everyday ‘designer’ – in this case the ordinary man on the street who needs to create a solution out of a need or provide a service for a need. These ordinary people, with no design education, show how a design is born from a need with the most modest solutions.
