Beirut Design Fair
Selection Committee
Quality First!
Remaining true to the promises of its first edition, Beirut Design Fair continues to take the utmost care in the structure of its Selection Committee to reflect its positioning and vision.

The fair founders and the Committee will work alongside, developing and fostering a selection based on quality, creativity, diversity, innovation and ancestral know-how. The Lebanese design scene is deeply rooted, plural, dynamic, and connected to the contemporary world, in perpetual reinvention.

Seeking quality first and foremost, the role of the Selection Committee is to allow the fair to find a balance between national and international exhibitors, between established and emerging or independent designers, Lebanese or International. This interaction is essential to maintain the primary orientation of Beirut Design Fair: to become the design showcase of the Mediterranean, where all collaborations are made possible beyond frontiers.
The Selection Committee is formed
Aline Asmar d’Amman, Lina Ghotmeh, Karim Chaya, Marc Baroud and Mathias Ohrel embrace a close relationship to Beirut, this ever-evolving city with a particular openness to the contemporary world. Interior architects, architects, designers, creative minds, and unique talent hunters, they all hold mankind in the core of their endeavours. They will participate closely to the elaboration of the fair, the selection of exhibitors, and the grant of the three Design Awards of the 2018 edition.

Furthermore, Lebanese architect and renowned interior designer Aline Asmar d’Amman was chosen as the Ambassador of Beirut Design Fair. Her exuberant energy, generosity, enthusiasm, and singular expertise are the perfect combination to become the advocate for Beirut Design Fair, an event with an international calling.

Marc Baroud
Marc Baroud is a designer, with work spanning over various fields. His enthusiasm for new ventures led him to experiment his approach in projects that are seemingly unrelated to design.
