Karina Sukar Gallery

  • Lebanese designers
  • furniture design

Gemmayzeh, Beirut district

Karina Sukar Gallery produces objects in various materials such as metal, wood, marble, glass. The products are raw and feel very organic and natural.

“I believe in creating objects with sense-appeal. An object must speak to us.”

“I like the visual and somatic synergy of finishes and material. Metal is strength, wood is warm. Together they exude powerful warmth. Marble is cold, glass is transparent. That is cold transparency. With wood, it would be warm transparency. The same goes for finishes. Raw is natural. Smooth is man’s take on natural. It may not seem obvious at first, but take a good look, and feel the material. Sense it. When you consider a single object, visualize it in its destined environment. By itself first, then with the other elements, interacting and oozing vibes. That is the sort of space you want to be in, or rather, part of.” - KS
