Provocative design and sensual aesthetics are an area of interest for Najla El Zein who had her first solo exhibition at the Friedman Benda gallery in New York City. The Lebanese creative tapped her own personal experiences as the main driving force for the silhouettes of the objects. The main topics she covers within the exhibition revolve around pregnancy and seduction.
The provocative design presentation offers a number of striking objects available to audiences — from lump-accented benches that refer to the changing pregnant body to the stacked pillars that refer to human foundation and appear slightly unstable.
In addition to producing a number of highly impactful and provocative designs, Najla El Zein shares that the endeavor was also "quite therapeutic as well."
