Minjara Editions celebrates and supports the furniture industry in Lebanon through remarkable design… Just revealed in Paris in an exhibition under the title “Design Ethos meets Craftsmanship” at the Lebanese Embassy in Paris, Minjara Editions, curated by Hala Moubarak, highlights design and artisanal approaches, the know-how and how the designers and artisans collaborated with one another.
Funded by the European Union and implemented by Expertise France, the Private Sector Development Program in Lebanon aims to provide financial and supportive services to the wood processing and furniture sector in Tripoli and the agribusiness sector in the Bekaa and Akkar regions.
Its objective is to increase their competitiveness, productivity and participation in the economy by fostering their development and integration into value chains.
It was as part of this commitment to the wood processing industry that Minjara was created. A symbol of the furniture sector in Tripoli, Minjara forms a new brand, a label of quality and also a hub to optimize the capacity of furniture producers in Tripoli.
The event brings bring together 10 Lebanese designers and artisans from Tripoli, including Samer Alameen, Architecture et Mécanisme, Ahmad Bazazo, Jamal Bittar, Mohamad El Kout and more, all curated by Hala Moubarak.
It is hoped that the engagement and conviction of everyone involved in the project will stand out in today’s world of design. Thanks to the ethical approach of both the designers and the artisans, the end result should be remarkable.
The exhibition will remain on show until September 17. Minjara Editions’ first collection will be presented again in Lebanon later in September.
