Disarming Design from Palestine

From Beyond Social


Recently I have set up the project 'Disarming Design from Palestine'. This is an inclusive design label that presents functional products from Palestine, which provide an alternative narrative to what you might usually find in the high street. The goods are developed, designed and produced by contemporary designers, artists and students in Palestine and abroad in collaboration with local artisans and producers. The first collection was launched in October 2014. In my presentation at the WdKA symposium 'Redesigning Business'(November 20 2014) I explained the constant need for improvisation in the context of the project 'Disarming Design from Palestine'
