BEIT Collective


BEIT Collective works to elevate and preserve traditional handicrafts in Lebanon. At a time when craft knowledge and cultural heritage are at risk due to territorial conflict and climate breakdown, BEIT Collective collaborates with sculptors and designers to explore the possibilities of Lebanese artisans to craft useful and beautiful objects for everyday practicality.

Working with Hamza Mekdad, their installation explores the multifunctional essence of a Corinthian-shaped heirloom from his childhood home.

Entitled The Essence of Home, all crafted items reflect daily culinary and domestic rituals, inviting viewers to envision shared meals and intimate exchanges.
