French designer Benedicte de Blavous Moubarak is employing marginalized people in Lebanon to transform architectural salvage into exciting concepts in interior design. Many of the traditional houses of Lebanon – inspired by Venetian and Ottoman architecture – have been destroyed, damaged by conflicts and abandoned. Moubarak’s collection, entitled [beyt], transforms wrought iron balustrades, window frames and other items that used to adorn Lebanon’s traditional houses into exciting floor and table lamps, consoles and other remarkable furnishings.
