Irthi x Architecture and Other Things Safeefah x Sand Casting
For the “Safeefah x Sand Casting” Design Lab, Irthi collaborated with Architecture + Other Things designers Nada Taryam, Faisal Tabbarah, and Khawla Al Hashimi to produce a collection of sand casted furniture -a table and a set of stools.
The designers and Irthi’s Bidwa trainees* experimentedwith di erent combinations of water, sand, concrete, clay,and soil, to create a substance that can set into a rock-likematerial. The nal material was cast into special frames lled with sand.
Bidwa Artisans* used their Safeefah* weaving skills to weave camel leather to create the stools’ seats, resulting in this exquisite and unique collection of furniture.
