Images d'Orient has a bohemian soul and goes hunting for patterns from the millennial weaving looms, and colours from the sparkling world of silk, the flamboyant warmth of velvet and the soothing feel of linen. A vagabond desire to explore the roads of yesteryear, these paths that speak of discoveries and encounters; of multi-belonging or being from here and elsewhere.
KAOKAB COLLECTION The sky has always been a mystery that fascinated earthlings. It lulls us to escape towards a limitless elsewhere. In old times, thinkers and sages are so captivated that they generated the most ancient discipline: astronomy. During the golden age of Islam in the VIII° century, art was enhanced with recurrent geometrical patterns such as the octagon and the 8 pointed stars. ‘Kaokab’ meaning planet, will immerse you in an enigmatic universe.
Common to many cultures, ZARQA is a talisman against the evil eye, symbol that represents envy. It is found in unusual places, suspended above door frames, hung around rear view mirrors, worn on pieces of jewelry and even pinned to children clothes. It is believed that when the eye “breaks,” it has fulfilled its role of keeping evil away and should be replaced by a new one.
Images d’Orient is inspired by the Venetian style windows of “Nicolas Sursock” Palace. This jewel of 1912 with its unique collection of modern and contemporary art was bestowed to the city of Beirut to root art in the region through exhibitions but also through new and unexpected programs that inform and engage the public. The new design is available in coasters, and coffee cups with tin especially. Keep in touch to know about all our new designs...
