The architect and founder of his eponymous studio reveals what makes these design objects special

Fadi Sarieddine, Objects of Desire

Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman by Ray & Charles Eames / 1956

Considering the year this piece was designed, it was a great breakthrough in the use of moulded plywood and a swivel single leg. This chair is timeless and is still valid today and will be for years to come.

Toio light by Achille Castiglioni / 1962

I love this light with its bold and unapologetic aesthetics and detailing.

Magis Officina Sofa by Ronan Bouroullec / 2017

The beauty of this sofa lies in the way its comfortable seats seem to float on a classic steel structure.

Anglepoise Giant light by George Carwardine / 1932

This classic light has become a part of everyone’s life and its extensive copying tells of its value in design culture. I love the giant version which accentuates the lights detailing on a large scale.

Rock 'n Roll Chair by Fadi Sarieddine / 2017

The chair pushes the boundary of the classic rocking chair by completing the arc of the legs thus creating a full circle. The chair with its full circular shape has the ability to roll and become a stable chaise lounge. The double circles are intersected by a series of lines generating the seat, back and arm rests. All connections are done using dowels and tie rope with no screws or nails.
