Marc Dibeh’s solo show at Joy Mardini Design Gallery takes us back in time. Called “Dimanche 6”, Dibeh looks back in time and reflects on his childhood memories, images and experiences from the 80s to the beginning of the 90s, to interpret them into sketches.
Dibeh, a Beirut-based designer recently won an award at Maison&Objet Rising Talents. His work revolves around storytelling, to try and create a story behind each and every product or interior while keeping it timeless and simple.
The exhibition revolves around Marc’s focus on storytelling when it comes to designing. For this collection, the story is a throwback to the 80s and early 90s where Marc travels back to visit his childhood memories and experiences which he later interprets into sketches. Those sketches of joyful memories are then translated into objects.
From drawings to sketches, Dibeh brings his creations to life with a desire to explore the unknown and take himself beyond his comfort zone. He tackles various shapes — all having a soft geometry in common — and uses white and its distinctive textures, as a starting point. He allows the light to caress the elements, creating softness by binding the curves and transmitting emotions through this sensory reflection.
These drawings of joyful echoes from the past are then translated into objects. With this collection, Dibeh tackles different forms of soft geometry where the use of the white color and its distinctive textures, serves as a starting point.
