Hometown: Beirut

Lives and Works: Beirut

 

Beirut based product designer Thomas Trad founded his studio in 2016, after graduating from London’s prestigious Central Saint Martin’s university. His work with world renowned studios Fredrikson Stallard and Michael Anastasiades revealed his meticulous approach to materials and fascination with manufacturing processes, a direction which is prevalent in his practice.

Thomas reveals his aesthetic sensibilities through furniture in the expression of a style that is both poetic and structured, lyrical and architectural, where organic shapes meet abstract forms. While conceiving his growing collection, Thomas adopts an experimental approach to materials, at same time questioning existing conventions in their use. The French ‘cannage’ incorporated in his ‘EVA’ partition is in stark contrast with the constructivist frame, which falls within the lines of his ethos in stylistic nonconformity and presents a refreshing perspective on design. Each of his creations join together an unexpected approach to manufacturing processes with fine workmanship of traditional crafts.

Thomas continuously works on refining his techniques, in his search for the unexpected in contemporary design. His future projects will involve larger scale work and further discovery of new materials, sealing his reputation as one of the key emerging designers in Beirut.
