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:
Looking sharp and gentlemanly, this chair composes all the masculine aspects from rough materials, to soft natural leather. A city man’s colour palette of black, natural camel and metal creates a new definition for a desk chair. Geometric from all angles, this chair reflects a contemporary twist on 1920’s elegance with an industrial touch.
