Tarek ElKassouf is a designer based between Beirut and Sydney who creates in three disciplines: Architecture, Urban Planning and Product/Furniture Design. His work is inspired by geometric patterns and is often spliced with futuristic parametric design.
Tarek has been working as an Architect and Urban Planner since 2005; on projects that range from landmarks to developing cities. He has received many awards in international competitions in both fields. He began refining his third passion, furniture design in 2014 with the launch of ‘The Edge’ series of furniture and lighting. His geometric products are considered to be “functional-sculptural pieces”.
Tarek was awarded the Silver A’ Design Award in the Young Design Category for The Edge – Beirut in 2015. Two of his works from the series, The Twisted Diamond Lamp and The Dark Edge Table were also awarded a Bronze A’ Design Award and an A ’Design Award respectively.
