Story-telling has a whole new dimension
An interior architect, furniture, product and lighting designer, this lady has definitely earned the name she has made for herself in Lebanon. Having graduated from the Académie Libanaise des Beaux-arts in Beirut with a Masters degree in Interior Architecture, Sandra took on an MFA in Lighting Design from Parsons, New York. Ever expanding her skills and knowledge as a designer, she travelled to Paris to complete an internship in Industrial Design at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs. Defining her creations as a form of story-telling, Sandra explains that there is often more to her designs than what meets the eye. She reveals to us that behind every collection there is a tale that inspired it – from reviving social awareness to conveying nostalgic sentiments. Drawn to the vintage world, each design constantly re-invents traditions with a fresh new contemporary technique, the result is a 'mélange' of contrasts. Her work illustrates the entire process; from the conception to the creation and production of her own furniture and home accessories line. In addition to this, she is the conceptual designer and interior architect behind a host of venues including boutiques, residences and restaurants. Being someone who enjoys experimenting and exploring new materials, Sandra’s artistic nature gave way to a mix of various functional collections from Democratic designs (SMAC), to limited edition pieces and space designing that arouse and stimulate different sensations and feelings.
