Atelier Khaled El Mays is a multi-disciplinary design studio that focuses on furniture design, interior architecture and graphics in space.
Khaled El Mays was born in Lebanon and has earned a degree in architecture from the American University of Beirut and an MFA in digital arts from Pratt institute in New York. His work tackles multiplicity and repetition, it is always a process-based mutations, and the outcome is always an instance of purity and balance extracted from pools of visual data.
In 2013, Khaled launched his debut collection, RHIZOMES, which in botany means a specific types of plants roots, it is full of colours, repetition and a nostalgia to nature and the multiplicity of its rhythms and textures. As for the philosophical aspect of the term, the colour palette defines the uncontrollable aspect of the colour combinations possible for this collection.
