  • Villa Sehnaoui Interior Design Elements 
    The design of interior elements for a residence in Lebanon
    explored three ways of formally and visually experimenting with Arabic lettering and traditional calligraphy, transforming it into
    a contemporary statement within three-dimensional space. 
    A shelving system is based on an old Islamic calligraphic tradition called square or geometric Kufi, and reveals the names of the home’s owners. A floor tiling detail and door handle are plays on another Arabic calligraphic script, Naskh, using it both formally and
    in distorted expressions.
