About 2018

Commended by a growing audience, the 2018 edition of Beirut Design Fair concluded on September 23rd at Seaside Arena, with Lebanon reflecting the extent of its confidence in Design, and Beirut asserting its position as the regional marketplace in this field. As a Mediterranean and Middle Eastern Design hub, the Lebanese capital enabled several international and regional Design stars to shine for 5 days.

Beirut Design Fair is principally dedicated to collectible and limited edition contemporary or vintage furniture and design objects. The fair presents pieces by leading international designers and galleries from across the world (Europe, USA, Middle East), with about 60 exhibitors from over 10 countries.

The fair’s museo-scenography set-up by Galal Mahmoud presented an exceptional architectural space full of emotion, which put the value of Design in the foreground. The level of this 2nd edition of Beirut Design Fair (BDF) was perceived as significantly higher, as per the objectives of the organizers and the Selection Committee; and the 19,800 visitors (up by 20% compared to 2017) did not miss to underline that perception. This 2nd edition brought together 58 exhibitors (28% more than in 2017) from the region and for the first time from Europe (Italy, France, Belgium, United Arab Emirates ...) presenting the creations of 111 designers (up by 26%).

Held under the patronage of the Association of Lebanese Industrialists, and supported since its beginnings by Myrna & Tarek Khalifé, Beirut Design Fair owes its standing and its development to the support of exceptional partners that it holds dear, starting with its Founding Partner, Creditbank, that renews its commitment without fail.

BEIRUT DESIGN FAIR offered an exceptional, innovative program that confirms Beirut’s role as one of today’s most vibrant centers of contemporary creation, while positioning Lebanon in its rightful place:  as the Design Platform of the Middle East!

Beirut Design Fair 2019 will be held in Beirut: 19 - 22 September 2019.
