Paola Sakr is a Beirut-based designer with a passion for photography and art. She started her own studio after graduating with honors from l’Académie Libanaise des Beaux-Arts with a Product Design bachelor.
In parallel, she worked as a product designer at PsLab before deciding to focus solely on her projects.
In her own words, she likes to think of her work as “little stories from different times. I see it as a selfless, ongoing collaboration with the world as I am never the recipient of the intention in my projects.”
There’s always the purpose of bringing a little something to the world, always trying to do a little good: whether it is environmental, social or simply something for the soul.
Being very passionate about research and experimentation, she believes in constant innovation and simplicity.
