THE MAN BE­HIND THE SLEEK WALLS . . .

I am a per­son who likes to tell sto­ries through my design. My ap­proach is not al­ways con­ven­tional, and it’s a lit­tle un­ex­pected. My taste in design is an eclec­tic mix of old and new. I like

lay­ers, and I like it a bit dark.

HIS LOVE FOR RUGS . . .

I was do­ing a few [in­te­rior] projects, and I couldn't find any­thing on the mar­ket that suited the char­ac­ters of the rooms I was de­sign­ing. So I made my own. I found the ex­pe­ri­ence

ex­tremely re­ward­ing and cathar­tic.

A SIL­VER SCREEN SIREN HE WOULD

WORK FOR . . .

My dear friend Ahd Kamel. She’s a Saudi film star and di­rec­tor. We just get each other, and to design a space for her would be a nice thank you for

our friend­ship af­ter all these years.

ABOUT HIS HOME .. .

My apart­ment is dark, twisty, and eclec­tic. It’s a mu­seum of my life as it houses mem­o­ries from eras of my life.

FAVOURITE THINGS

ON HIS SHELF. . .

My grand­fa­ther’s type­writer, a paint­ing I bought from Bali years ago, and the two brass can­dle­sticks from

a church in Brus­sels.
