Containing a sense of playfulness within a refined aesthetic, Marc Dibeh is a Lebanese designer who is renowned for his conceptual home and business interiors and range of housewares, furniture, and accessories.
After studying Architecture at the Ecole Nationale Superieure de Paris Val De Seine, the designer returned to Beirut where he completed a Masters in Product Design at the Academie Libanaise des Beaux-Arts. He then worked alongside Marc Boulod (who he still collaborates with) before establishing his own studio in 2009.
The designer’s work revolves around the notion of storytelling and each piece or interior design project he realizes is embedded with a story within a timeless elegance, attained through geometric shapes and a classic muted palette with subtle metallic accents of oxidized brass.
One of his most striking pieces is the Y Lamp. Inspired by x and y genes, it is an adjustable ceiling-mounted wall fixture lamp made from brass, steel, and marble, which was originally commissioned by Art Factum Gallery in 2015. Exuding the elegance of modern architecture, it looks like a pendulum with a soft halo of light radiating around its circumference.
Having exhibited around the world in Milan, Miami, Basel, Berlin, Dubai, Lausanne, London, and Paris, Dibeh has gained huge respect in the international design sphere. The designer, who also teaches at Académie Libanaise des Beaux-Arts, was selected alongside Marc Baroud as one of the five breakout stars of the Design Miami, Miami edition in 2013 by the Wall Street Journal after exhibiting his Wires series with Art Factum Gallery. He was also selected as part of the five up and coming designers of the design Miami, Basel edition in 2015 by Artsy. More recently, he was awarded the Generation Orient Prize in 2016 and he received the Rising Talents Award by Maison & Objets Paris in 2018.
