“We are always trying to understand how things worked before, how they are now, and how they might be later.”

David Raffoul and Nicolas Moussallem set up their studio in Beirut in 2011. Since then they have been describing their aesthetic as ‘retro-futuristic’, a mixture of influences from different periods, languages and cultures. The use of contrasting materials and the blending of retro, contemporary and futuristic elements gives their projects a timeless identity.
