After studying at the École Nationale Supérieure de Paris Val De Seine, Marc Dibeh chose to return to Beirut to pursue a Master’s in Product Design at the Lebanese Academy of Fine Arts. After a three-year experience working alongside Marc Baroud, he went on to establish his own studio in 2009. Today, the two men still regularly collaborate, most notably on Dibeh’s Wires series, which took him to DesignMiami in 2013. Featured in institutions like Gallery S. Bensimon in Paris or Seeds London Gallery, his work skilfully plays on the notion of narrative, as exemplified by the five mirrors from his Please, Don’t Tell Mom range, specially designed for the Art Factum Gallery after he broke one there by mistake.

More recently, an exhibition entitled Jungle Protocol, held during the House of Today’s Design Biennial, inspired him to create a very dramatic rattan umbrella system he called Somewhere Under the Leaves, an evocation of a safe haven in the jungle. All of these ideas, Marc Dibeh consistently materializes with his very own stylistic approach.

“Behind each story there are people, relationships and memories. It is like packing a whole world into a single object.”
