Beirut Design Week 2018

Exclusive preview of the first Adorno Design Collection of Beirut

Independent + Emergent Designers Exhibition
Beirut Design Week 2018

ADORNO x BEIRUT DESIGN WEEK

The annual “Independent + Emergent Designers Exhibition” at Beirut Design Week (BDW) is this year organized in partnership with ADORNO (22.-29. June).

In April, Adorno and BDW issued an open call to find the independent and emerging designers whose work best expresses the design character, broad scope and creative energy of the region – with a particular emphasis on submissions that represent a positive and life-enhancing contribution to city life.

A selection of the best pieces from the exhibition will be presented as the first city collection of Beirut on www.adorno.design to be launched on 29. June the last day of the design week.

The exclusive preview

With an invitation to the exclusive online preview of the first Adorno Beirut design collection you will have the opportunity to view the collection no matter where you are located in the world.

The pieces are not on sale during the exhibition. The exclusive preview therefore presents a unique opportunity to view and acquire the unique pieces and limited editions before anyone else.

Selected by leading design experts

The open-call judges comprised a global panel of leading designers, critics and curators, including: BDW creative director Ghassan Salameh; Joy Mardini, founder of Joy Mardini Design gallery; Ana Dominguez Siemens, the design writer and curator behind Adorno’s Madrid and Barcelona collections; and Curator and author Suzanne Trocmé  and Libanese Designer Nada Debs. The panel selected 23 pieces for the exhibition.

The exhibition will be presented at ‘Beit Beirut’
The new museum of the city’s history, housed in the recently restored ‘Yellow House’. 

Highlights

Adorno was launched in 2017 by Copenhagen-based design lovers and tech entrepreneurs Kristian Snorre Andersen and Martin Clausen in order to give designers around the world a unique opportunity to present their work to the global market, and to provide design enthusiasts with a chance to discover and acquire unique and limited-edition work. By establishing a network of expert curators in key design destinations around the world, Adorno has been able to not only maintain rigorously controlled quality, but also to provide its community with a unique insight into the distinctive and evolving design cultures around the world.
