Founded in 2013 by the Dubai-based Lebanese architect Fadi Sarieddine, the multidisciplinary atelier is dedicated to innovation in design across a wide spectrum of scale, media and context.
Continually challenging traditional design and examining it through new materials, applications and technologies, Sarieddine’s experimental approach to design is the springboard from which the studio explores the intersections of art, architecture, interiors and product design.
Be it a singular object that investigates the evolution of Middle Eastern design ideologies or large-scale residential, retail, hospitality and corporate projects that champion creative excellence in the region, the atelier treats each project as an opportunity for creative discovery and cultural storytelling.
Fadi Sarieddine Design Studio is located at Dubai Design District, Building Eight.

On the other, the designs allow the user to interfere with the object transforming it to his/her needs. His pieces come with a sense of discovery, like books whose stories are yet to be told...
