Speaking to The Daily Star before his play date, the co-founder of architectural firm ACID and designer of his own product line called Spock Design has something less technologically advanced on his mind: candles.He's designed a range of lighting fixtures highlighting the humble candle as part of an exhibition commissioned by Beirut's Art Factum Gallery for Design Days Dubai, which will exhibit a range of international designers in mid-March. All four designers were asked to respond to the word "spectrum," and naturally, Chaya says, they all gravitated to the concept of light.While Chaya's work at ACID, the larger industrial design firm that he co-founded with Raed Abillama in 1997, has helped shape the way he approaches his more creative projects at Spock, it is his intricate knowledge of the design resources in Lebanon that inspires all this experimentation.In such a small country, you often see results immediately when you approach various craftsmen with designs, Chaya says.Chaya sees a parallel between the design culture in Beirut and that at Design Days Dubai, which he says will highlight work from a diverse array of artists.
