ROULA SALAMOUN AND IEVA SAUDARGAITE

Dur­ing Beirut De­sign Week last May, ar­chi­tect Roula Salamoun and artist Ieva Saudargaite col­lab­o­rated to cre­ate the ‘Na­tion­metrix’ in­stal­la­tion, a spa­tial rep­re­sen­ta­tion of trav­el­ling as a Le­banese pass­port holder. Cords of re­cy­cled plas­tic hung from the ceil­ing, with the denser ar­eas rep­re­sent­ing the hos­til­ity faced by Le­banese trav­el­ers. @roula. salamoun; @ieva. saudargaite

PAOLA SAKR

In­spired by her mem­o­ries of watch­ing her fa­ther sip on cof­fee every morn­ing, Paola Sakr’s pas­sion for sus­tain­abil­ity led her to cre­ate the ‘Morn­ing Ri­tual’, a series of biodegrad­able con­tain­ers made from a mix of cof­fee grounds and news­pa­per waste. www .pao­lasakr. de­sign ; @pao­lasakr

JEN­NIFER COLLIER

“Giv­ing new life to things that would other­wise go unloved or be thrown away” is the idea cen­tral to Jen­nifer Collier’s world. Us­ing tra­di­tional tex­tile tech­niques, Jen­nifer finds ver­sa­tile ways to trans­form pa­per from books, maps, and wall­pa­pers into dec­o­ra­tive tex­tu­ral ob­jects. www.jen­nifer­col­lier.co.uk @pa­per­jen­nifer
