The ‘Beirut Candle Holder’ is based on the idea of putting pieces back together to create colourful yet luxurious candle holders that can be bought as a set or separately.
About the Artist
Yara Boulos is an interior designer, with an Alba and RCA background, living in London for 4 years changed the perspective she had on the design world and made it grow into a beautiful marriage between design and sustainability.
Boulos Signature is the family’s marble company, from which they get marble waste with each project they deliver to perfection.
From those wastes, was created the concept of Studio MAU, “Marbled & Upcycled”, taking the residues of luxurious stones and re-proposing them into modern and contemporary home accessories, that have multi-purposes.
The concept behind Studio MAU is to help create a better world, reduce waste and create beautiful simple pieces that will elevate your spaces.
About the Brand
Exil Collective was created as an invitation to change the way design is perceived in Lebanon and the Middle East.
In order to reach this goal, we put forward a set of guidelines meant to optimise creation, production, and distribution of design objects imagined by local talents and produced by local artisans. These guidelines are meant to direct the designers’ thinking toward local feasibility, waste reduction, and ethical production: context as a guide for creation tailored to local manufacturing.
