House of Today, the internationally recognized platform for design in Lebanon, has announced the concept for its 2018 Biennale: ‘Elevate, the quest for heightened senses’, which will take place in Beirut from December 12th to December 28th, 2018. 


For the 2018 Biennale, House of Today is calling upon talented Lebanese designers & creatives to elevate the norms, using their own design aesthetic to create tables that not only serve a function or purpose, but that trigger emotions through a journey of sensorial experience.


The selected designers include Jana Aridi, Tamara Barrage, david/nicolas, Nadine Hajjar, Charles Kalpakian, Stephanie Moussallem, Roula Salamoun, Marie-Lyne Samaha & Anthony Daher, Sibylle Tarazi, Salim Al Kadi.


House of Today is proud to collaborate for 2018 with New York’s prestigious international gallery R & Company to pair three of their designers with three Lebanese designers to conceive a table together. The pairings are Haas Brothers X Carlo & Mary-Lynn Massoud, Rogan Gregory X Flavie Audi and Katie Stout X Sayar & Garibeh.


First ever retrospective celebrating modernist architect Khalil Khoury’s furniture work.

The Shop will return to the Biennale for 2018. Offering home and office products in collaboration with WallpaperSTORE*.
