1% Architecture is a tribute to a culture of anti-conformism. The workshop aims to offer a different approach to architecture and design. Its founder, architect Waldemar Faddoul, has a true passion for details and aspires to design buildings, spaces, and objects with a purpose, a soul, and a unique identity. After several years of designing homes and furniture for clients, the workshop has come to develop its own DNA and eventually launched its own homegrown collection of multipurpose furniture, named 1% Design.

The new collection illustrates the workshop’s commitment to preserving and promoting local handcraftsmanship. Each design is the result of a synergy between industrial technologies and traditional artisan competence, thereby crafting tomorrow’s heritage.

The collection is showcased at the 1% permanent showroom, located in Mar Mikhael, Beirut and at the 1% popup gallery situated in Canal Saint-Martin, Paris.

From December 8 to 14, 2018, check out the 1% Design exhibit at the Lebanese Embassy in Paris, at 3 Villa Copernic in the 16th arrondissement.
