Charles Kalpakian created a 3D variation of a classic pattern used by cabinet makers. He plays with our perception of space and volume with an object that reveals and changes according to the observer’s point of view.
Charles Kalpakian was born in 1982 in Beirut (Lebanon). Charles Kalpakian’s design has three roots: France, Lebanon and the culture of Street Art. These influences are evident in the reinterpretation of certain motifs from the history of decorative arts (such as French marquetry), and iconic motifs from Lebanese history and geography (such as Lebanese cedar wood), filtered by urban and contemporary culture.
