Carwan Gallery

Founded in Beirut in 2010 by architects Wakim Pascale and Nicolas Bellavance-LeCompt, The Carwan Gallery was born as the first pop-up gallery of the Middle East, which sets up and organizes exhibitions in the most representative design places on collections made in limited editions.
On the occasion of the ‘Salone Internazionale del Mobile 2012’, in Milan, in the area of Lambrate Ventura, the Carwan Gallery presented Contemporary Perspectives in Middle Eastern crafts. The exhibition showed furniture and objects created by the interaction between nine emerging designers and nine Middle Eastern artisans including Lindsey Adelman, Mischer’Traxler Studio, Nada Debs, Oeuffice, Paul Loebach, Philippe Malouin and Tamer Nakisci. The exhibits outline new perspectives in the field of design and craftsmanship possible thanks to a strong synergy between design methodologies of international designers and Middle Eastern craft technique applicable to high-quality materials such as silk, mother of pearl, solid wood, straw Vienna hand-braided, brass and wool.
