Born in Lebanon and raised in Japan, Nada Debs calls her style “East and East”. Her unique practice blends cultural languages that at first seem incompatible: the minimalist refinement of Japan (the Far East) and the ornamentation of the Middle East. The designer, who studied at the Rhode Island School of Design in the U.S. and worked in the U.K. before returning to Beirut, calls this round-the-world journey her personal Silk Road. She embellishes contemporary design with marquetry, the ancient tradition of inlaid mother-of-pearl, to create chic, modern furniture. She is best known for her popular Floating stool, a lighthearted design featuring a cushion suspended in an acrylic case.
