Designer Tony Ward Hosts Two Lebanese Artists In-House

As part of an initiative supporting arts and creativity, fashion designer Tony Ward is hosting two artists in-house. Two different worlds collide; the serene poetic paintings of Nada Matta beautifully, mixed with the dynamic and playful steel installations of Nayla Kai Saroufim.
