Presentation BDF 2020

Beirut Design Fair (BDF) is dedicated to collectible and limited edition contemporary and modern furniture and design objects. This year, the fair presents pieces by leading international designers and galleries from across the world (Europe, Middle East), with about 50 exhibitors from over 10 countries.

The combination of the Beirut Design Fair with the Beirut Art Fair (which celebrated its 10th anniversary this year ) was unanimously appreciated by the exhibitors, as well as being enthusiastically welcomed by the visitors.

The layout of BDF, designed by architect Rawad Rizk, presented two moving and monumental spaces, which served as showcases for the design creations the spaces themselves housed, alongside inviting visitors to question the architectural chaos of Beirut.

The level at the 3rd edition of BDF has risen significantly, in accordance with the objectives of the organizers and the Selection Committee, which the visitors did not fail to notice.

This meeting brought together 46 exhibitors from the region (Lebanon, Iran, United Arab Emirates ...), the Ivory Coast and Europe (Belgium, France ...), who presented the creations of more than 100 designers. Design jewelry made a notable entry into the fair, which hosted major Lebanese artists, including Nada Le Cavelier, Randa Tabbah, Nada G and Marie Munier. A high number of contemporary and emerging Lebanese designers were represented (35 exhibitors), as well as a prominence of Belgian design (5 exhibitors) and finally the biggest regional galleries specialized in the Modern Design (vintage).

Beirut Design Fair demonstrates the legitimacy and growth of Lebanon’s creativity in the international design scene, as well as the appetite of the local market for quality furniture and objects presented with it. More than 80% of the exhibitors sold (and for some of them sold out!) During BDF and most of them expressed their intention to participate again in 2020.

Beirut Design Fair 2020 will be held in Beirut: 17 - 20 September 2020.
