This elegant tray wrapped in colorful marquetry strips is part of the MarquetryMania collection which explores, once again, the handcrafted technique of parquetry by applying a playful yet powerful interpretation to it. Bypassing the expected, the collection is comprised of home accessories and furniture with a softer edge. Applying linear forms onto rounded shapes breaks down the paradox and gives rise to a whole new interpretation of this Middle Eastern craft. Mania is conveyed by striking color combinations, bold shapes, and raving mirror reflections.
The curved edges and slim design of the MarquetryMania tray share a contemporary interpretation of the traditional craft of marquetry. The tray crafted from American walnut wood features a deep brown color with stripes of colored marquetry. Perfect for serving or display, it makes an ideal gift or décor object.
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.
