Charles Kalpakian was born in Beirut (Lebanon) in 1982. In 2011, after collaborating with prestigious agencies including the Ora Ito and Christophe Pillet, he launches his design studio and develops his own projects.
His style? He draws it from his roots. France, Lebanon, and the street art culture. These influences take shape for the reinterpretation of motifs from the decorative arts inherited from the history and geography of Lebanon, passed to the filter of urban and contemporary culture. The line is always clear, even if the gesture is sometimes akin to writing calligraphy. Furniture, product design, tableware, staging, the territories are as rich as his creation with oriental influences mingling with western culture imprint of modernity.
