Omar Nakkash, the Dubai-based designer, will debut his newest project, an innovative sculptural table lamp titled Trinity at the 2018 Beirut Design Fair.
The concept was designed specifically for the Beirut Design Fair as it draws it’s inspiration from the history & architecture of Beirut, primarily, the three equilateral pointed arches commonly found on building facades in Lebanon.
Speaking ahead of its debut, Omar commented “I’m delighted to be launching Trinity at the Beirut Design Fair. It’s very fitting that a concept so heavily influenced by the historic architecture of Beirut be unveiled in the city from which it drew its inspiration.”
“The lighting piece is versatile and flexible in nature, as such its design allows for it to be expanded from its current format, a series of rising arches, into several other forms and will be developed into, amongst other potential manifestations, lighting pieces and a chandelier,” he added.
