The CVs of Squad Design's five resident designers read like a who's who of product design companies and schools around the world.Franco-Lebanese Elie Chaker dreamed of starting a design incubator here as he built his career, first outside the country as an architect in Paris and then running a furniture and interior accessories shop in Lebanon. The move to open the Wood Factory here in 1999 eventually spawned the designers' incubator Squad Design two years ago. The resident designers are getting ready to bring their best work to display at this month's prestigious Design Days Dubai. Through the Wood Factory, the veteran designer is funding the production and exposure of the items, giving the designers on average a 15 percent commission of what they sell.
