RE-THINKING THE TRADITIONAL Furniture Design, led by Suliman Innab and Hamza Omari
In collaboration with Alãan, the workshop focused on furniture design; Designers re-imagined traditional furniture items to give a new life to the traditional function and form, addressing the relationships between function, form, material, texture, and feeling by thinking about one key question “How would we do it now?"
The workshop will take a second look at materials that have fallen out of utility in favor of modern alternatives. During the course of this hands-on workshop participants will be challenged to reimagine how traditional materials can be modified to fit a more contemporary lifestyle.
