For his 2018 HAWA Beirut furniture collection, architect and product designer Richard Yasmine draws inspiration from the shapes and motifs found in Lebanese architecture. The capsule is characterized by minimalist designs that easily integrate themselves into any contemporary room setting. The pieces boast beautiful pastel colorings — from the dust pink armchair to its mint green counterpart.
What unites the HAWA Beirut collection, however, is its uncanny references to Lebanese architecture. To pay tribute to the Middle Eastern country's construction aesthetics, Richard Yasmine creates a delicate and strongly arched furniture collection. Offering a contrast to the minimalist appearances of the chairs and the table is a whimsical decorative screen. Though the skeleton of the piece resembles that of the rest of HAWA Beirut, it takes the inspiration from Lebanese Architecture one step further with stained glass and other expressive embellishments.
