Beirut. The Eras of Design
Museum of Contemporary Design and Applied Arts, Lusanna
July 07 – August 06, 2023
A city at the crossroads of East and West, Beirut has been in artistic turmoil since the early 2000s. Design too has enjoyed this dynamic and is even one of its most significant indicators. In order to grasp the dynamic lines that have enabled the design to develop in Lebanon, Beirut.
The Times of Design, produced jointly with the CID in Grand-Hornu, is structured in three sets. The first one on the beginnings of the discipline in Lebanon between 1950 and 1970, the second from 2000 until today and finally, the third dedicated to the Minjara project and its philosophy.
These three different perspectives offer visitors a look at a city that is constantly changing and to which design has now become a privileged witness.
