Upon entering the Beirut Design Fair, one encounters an infectious atmosphere of excitement as visitors and designers alike circulated among 44 exhibitors showcasing the work of some 100 Lebanese designers gathered together in Lebanon for the first time. This first edition of BDF, launched last Wednesday at BIEL, runs through Sunday simultaneously with the adjacent, and already well-established, Beirut Art Fair (BAF). When BAF became a pure art fair, some of the designers didn't have a place to go, d'Heliand told The Daily Star. This eclecticism didn't go unnoticed among the visitors to and designers of the fair.Judging from the impressions of the visitors and designers, quality was certainly on hand, something that came as a bit of a surprise to many.For Rif, the idea of the fair is brilliant. Something embodied by projects like the Stouff, which gives a contemporary take to the Lebanese stove and is the product of MAD architecture and design, formed by the Lebanese couple Anthony and Marie-Lyne Daher.
