Funquetry Tissue Box
(L 25 x W 12) cm
All prices include VAT
The Funquetry collection shares a playful and contemporary interpretation of the traditional craft of parquetry. Strips of different colored wood are inlaid, and in some pieces, these are then sliced and shifted to create a break in the geometric pattern. In others, they are applied onto pleated wood. Our perception of these pieces changes as we move around them. All are handmade in Beirut using either American Walnut or bleached American Walnut as a base.
Elegant yet functional, the Funquetry Tissue Box brings contemporary styling to your table with ease. Available in cube or rectangular form, its grey stained French oak finish carries subtle inlays that are abstract in form and color.
About the Brand
Lebanese designer Nada Debs is known for her characteristic style which combines Middle Eastern craft with Far Eastern sensibility. This fusion of traditional style elements designed with a minimalist approach and modern materials has become her trademark. Her style stems from her exposure to diverse cultures and experiences, from a childhood in Japan, to design school in America, and her first professional foray in the UK. Her journey came full circle when after an absence of 40 years, she returned to Lebanon and launched her company ‘East and East’ in the year 2000.
Geometry is an important tool for Nada Debs, representing complex philosophies with intricate, simple beauty. She uses materials to tell tactile stories, sometimes in pure and surprising forms, and sometimes with intriguing combinations and juxtapositions.
Her work spans scale and discipline: from product and furniture design to one-off commissions across craft, art, fashion and interiors. What ties her work together is her ability to distil culture and craftsmanship to create pieces of emotional resonance. She captures the power of the human hand to tell stories that touch the heart. She calls her approach: handmade and heartmade.
