Atelier Jespers is pleased to present the multidisciplinary designer Marc Baroud for it’s 5th participation of Brussels Design September 2019, after hosting the great duo Ben Storm & Gerard Kuijpers, the eminent furniture maker Casimir, the renowned designer Michael Anastassiades and the Spanish ceramic master Enric Mestre.
Based between Paris and Beirut, Marc Baroud founded the Design Department at Académie Libanaise des Beaux-Arts which he also directed from 2012 to 2017, with the ambition of leveraging design as a broader discipline than one limited to creating aesthetics and artefacts. He experiments several applications of Design and works on various projects that include commercial architecture, scenography, interior design, furniture, services, and brand development. His collectible artworks have been presented in Beirut, Brussels, Dubai, London, Milan, Paris, Design/Miami, and Design/Miami Basel.
For Design September, Marc Baroud shares his vision of slow, fair, new-luxury furniture through his project DtoD.store. The presented objects have been designed with a radical approach that dismisses standards, yet constructed with modernist inspiration. His leitmotiv is doing more with less by producing locally sustainable state-of-art objects and furniture in a limited edition for wise consumption.
The curator Jean-François Declercq chooses to present the following pieces Segments tables, benches and shelves, Articulation Lamps, Cluster Lights
