Qompendium is an evolving and ever-changing platform for philosophy, art, culture and science, represented by a series of print publications: magazines, books and monographs. Furthermore, it is enriched by a gallery concept, a work shop and a fast-moving online portal.
You ain’t seen color yet. That is until you’ve laid your eyes on one of the dynamic designs of Hoda Baroudi and Maria Hibri. With a flair for vintage and antique furniture as well as ancient textiles and tapestries from the Levant and Silk Road, the Beirut-based duo scissor and stitch their way with a ludic touch.
Each piece is a pastiche of texture and color stories in crazy juxtapositions as the ever eccentric African Wax Prints. All design objects are handmade and reworked by local artisans using recycled fabrics from regions as far reaching as Samarkand, Aleppo and Istanbul.
