The Wall Street Journal named Marc Dibeh and Marc Baroud’s Wires Series as one of five standout attractions from the annual exhibition of contemporary design, which is taking place in Miami between December 4 and 8.
Marc Baroud and Marc Dibeh, two well established Lebanese designers, are bringing forth a display of household items in a series titled ‘Wires’, where, quite literally, an industrial metal pipe is used to create each item; from a mirror, to a tray, to a series of differently designed shelves, this single tube of pipe is cut, bent, and melded into intricately curved shapes, thus cre- ating a minimalistic design that rids the eye of any excess aesthetic additions.
My favorite object by Marc Dibeh is the Love Bird. It’s a table-top lamp that has a sexy toy (Dildo) stowed in its side.

Finally Lebanese people with an worthy achievement (but still not as important as the biggest hommous plate).
I have seen the love bird a few years back on Dezeen, and i think its one of the best sex toys design. As for the connection with the lamp…it’s pure genius. It reflects perfectly the Lebanese society with all its taboos.
