"Gradient Mashrabiya"


"Gradient Mashrabiya" is an installation curated under the umbrella of Carwan Gallery. The duo of Austrian designers Mischer'Traxler was commissioned to collaborate with an expert woodworker in Lebanon to redefine the construction of traditional mashrabiyas. The result 'a sideboard' is composed of a network of more than 650 distinct pieces of manually carved wood. The project has been displayed in a live performance and installation during Design Days Dubai and Milan Design Week in 2012.
