The principal objective of Beirut Design Fair is to highlight the best galleries and established designers alongside rising stars from today’s emerging generation of creators.
The galleries selected for the fair will reveal the effervescence of a creative scene at once global and rooted in tradition — one which constitutes an important meeting point for local and international energy and inspiration.
