Featuring on this list of the region’s most influential interior designers by Commercial Interior Design for the first time, Rabih Geha started his eponymously named, multidisciplinary practice in 2006. As one of the most sought-after names in Lebanon’s design circles, Geha has put his distinct mark on numerous projects, including some of Beirut’s popular fitness spaces, nightlife venues, luxury residences, as well as other commercial and retail interiors. Most recently, 2Weeks, a nightclub in Beirut by Geha, was awarded the Interior Design of the Year: Bars and Nightclubs category at the 2018 Commercial Interior Design Awards.
The Lebanese-Croatian architect believes in contributing to the community through academic work. In 2006, he launched an experiment-driven and research-led workshop at the l’academia Libanaise des Beaux-Arts (ALBA), where he is currently a mentor to Lebanon’s next generation of interior architects. Geha’s recent projects include AHM, a rooftop lounge bar in the Four Seasons Hotel, boutique healthclubs such as U Energy, and Vim and Vigor. Among the upcoming projects, he is most excited about his restoration work on an old heritage house, built in the 1880s, which belongs to a notable Lebanese political family.
