The firm that created the mosaic at two Abu Dhabi landmarks has designed a limited-edition table to raise funds for victims of the Beirut bomb blast.

Italian brand Fantini Mosaic is known in the UAE for its spectacular work at Abu Dhabi's Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque.

After hearing about the tragic explosion in the Lebanese capital, its artisans designed a limited-edition collection of 10 coffee tables, made in the shape of Lebanon and hand-decorated using pieces of Murano glass mosaic in the country's flag.

All the proceeds generated from the sales of the artisanal mosaic tables will be donated to the Lebanese Red Cross.

The blast on August 4th killed at least 180 and wounded over 6,000. Investigations into the cause are ongoing.

A spokesperson for Fantini Mosaici's Abu Dhabi office says: "We want to make a contribution to the Lebanese Red Cross, as there are so many people who, through no fault of their own, are in dire need of some support, during this on-going crisis.

"We will give 100 per cent of the proceeds from the sales of these objects to charity".

Fantini Mosaici has operated in the UAE for over 15 years and also created mosaic work for the capital's Presidential Palace, Qasr Al Watan.
