Lives and Works: Beirut
Karina Sukar is a Lebanese Interior Architect and Designer who juggles both talents with equal enthusiasm. She often brings together both skills, harmoniously combining creative and functional aspects. Karina has a passion for turning the plain into aesthetic and for redesigning vintage objects, mixing materials and finishes in the process and finding inspiration everywhere. Geometrical shapes become a cabinet, rain drops on a pond are a cluster of tables, construction rebars become a wine bar, venetian blinds turn into a lounging chair and Mondrian’s composition becomes a mirror… all “proudly made in Lebanon.” Karina “Believes in creating objects with sense-appeal. An object must speak to us.” Applying this concept to interior architecture, she goes, “Our living environment acts upon us. We need to choose how.” You should not only look forward to being in your living space, but also be part of it. Her inspiration while bringing mind to pen is summarized by her motto, “Art Works."
