david/nicolas is a Beirut based design studio co-founded in 2011 by David Raffoul and Nicolas Moussallem. Their work revolves around an idea: to try and create timeless pieces. Much of their work could be defined as retro-futuristic because of the way they create pieces, not to follow trends, but by blending styles from different time periods. They were selected as part of the 3 breakout stars of Milan design week in 2014 by the New York Times.
Their latest design ‘Bar Michele’ is a bar created for a very specific environment. Inspired by a gymnastic beam, its shape symbolizes balance. With an interesting mix of material like leather, polished brass, Iranian white Onyx marble and black painted metal, this object assumes a certain eclectic factor, making it harmonious with its surroundings.
