DECOHAUS is the theme of a collection inspired by Art Deco and Bauhaus, the two international design movements that overlapped during the 20’s. All of this collection’s designs have been locally reinterpreted using traditional UAE materials (such as camel leather) and the octagon, a shape often found in Middle Eastern and Islamic design and patterns. Each piece has been named after this key shape of the octagon. Hence:
From the imagery of the grand marble entrance halls and staircases of the 1920’s mansions, came this simple yet grand hall table. OCTA HALL is a hallway table that combines octagons of different marbles locked together by leather joining belts. The colours are of the 20’s period – black, white, and rose.
