Contemporary art and designer activism are surely starting to flourish in Beirut as many creatives address Lebanon's "socio-political unrest," as well as the need for social connection between members of the public and this is best observed through a new project by Beirut design studio T Sakhi — a socially interactive wall.
The pavilion made its debut earlier in November at Dubai Design Week. The project vastly relies on elements of "resilience" and cultural uniqueness as pushed forth by Lebanese people. The connection-fostering interactive wall is built with recyclable foam, building on the notion of sustainability. Dubbed 'WAL(L)TZ,' the installation is designed in such a way that it playfully manifests pathways for individuals to communicate with one another. It is a total of 15 meters in length.
