Paola Sakr is a Beirut-based designer with a passion for photography and art. She started her studio in 2016, after graduating with honours from l'Académie Libanaise des Beaux-Arts with a Product Design bachelor. In parallel, she worked as a product designer at PsLab before deciding to focus solely on her projects.
In her own words, she describes her work as “little stories from different times; a selfless and ongoing collaboration with the world”. There’s always the purpose of bringing a little something to the world, always trying to do a little good: whether it is environmental, social or simply something for the soul.
Being very passionate about research and experimentation, she believes in constant innovation and simplicity. This shows in her recurrent approach to material experimentation and innovation in her projects; often turning the medium into the message.
In the past few years, her projects were exhibited around the Middle East and Europe. She was also awarded the "Rising Talents Award" by Maison&Objet in September 2018.
