Hala MOUBARAK (b.1982, Lebanon) is an interior designer specializing in objects design. Following her graduate degree in 2005, Moubarak worked in the Gulf countries before returning to Lebanon in 2010. Fascinated by the various processes of creation, in 2012, she became a journalist for the French-speaking Deco Magazine and uncovered many talented designers in Lebanon. From 2011 to 2017, Moubarak taught history of art and architecture, history of furniture and design; and led interior architecture and design workshops at the Holy Spirit University of Kaslik (USEK). In 2017, she co-founded the first of its kind in the country, the Beirut Design Fair, and is in charge of its artistic direction. In 2019, she created with a group of designers the first affordable collection of designed objects for Minjara Editions, funded by the European Union. Working to make design accessible, Moubarak creates projects centered on collaborations between different trades and promotes the traditional production knowledge and techniques found in Lebanon.
