Marc Baroud

Marc BAROUD (b.1978, Lebanon) is an inter-disciplinary designer. He practices his design method in a large array of projects. In 2012, Baroud founded the Design Department at Académie Libanaise des Beaux-Arts (ALBA) and directed it until 2017. His objective was to reform design education while using the same contextual approach as he uses in designing. The implemented curriculum envisioned design as a broader discipline rather than one limited to creating aesthetics and artifacts. Based between Paris and Beirut, Baroud works on bridging these two cities and cultures, as well as across several areas of design. His projects include commercial architecture, scenography, interior design, furniture, services and brand development. As a product designer, Baroud works on industrial, artisanal and experimental projects, consulting for private initiatives, start-ups, as well as big corporations. His collectible works have been shown in Beirut, Brussels, Dubai, London, Milan, Paris, Design/Miami and Design/Miami Basel. His work is in the permanent collections of both private and public institutions, including Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris and mudac in Lausanne.
