Since 2011, the traveling gallery Gabriel & Guillaume – by the tour de force duo Nancy Gabriel and Guillaume Excoffier – has been curating pop-ups that explore decorative arts from old and modern world design. The latest stop is Lebanon – Downtown’s debut vertical village, the Beirut Terraces, to be exact.
The new decorative fall show runs up to December 23 and celebrates 50 designers in the form of interior spaces styled with special objects, furniture, and art collected by the dynamic two, presented across 870 sqm. The effect is more one of wandering around the home of someone with impeccably taste, than browsing a pop-up.
You’ll discover designs by George Nakashima, Gino Sarfatti, Jorge Zalszupin, and José Zanine, among pieces by Gio Ponti and Wendell Castle. The selection includes bespoke furniture and art by an impressive roster of international brands that the two founders hold in high regard (Cue: O & Oos and Mauro Mori).
The arts education begins before even setting foot inside the building. Beirut Terraces is one-of-a-kind and proves to be an idyllic, directional location to house an interior pop-up. Designed by Swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron and developed by Benchmark, visitors of the Gabriel & Guillaume show will no doubt reload their Instagram feeds immediately upon arrival at the waterfront tower. Snap the pencil and ink a visit into your diary now.
Gabriel & Guillaume’s fall pop-up at Beirut Terraces is open now until December 23. For further details visit the official site.
