BIO - ELIE METNI

 

 

Elie Metni is currently completing his Diploma of Higher Studies in Architecture at the Académie Libanaise des Beaux-Arts (ALBA) where he is also a part time instructor.

In 2012, he joined the Herzog and de Meuron architecture firm in Switzerland for a year-long internship, where he participated in the design process of various projects.
Following his internship, he worked for 1% Architecture in Beirut where he contributed to the development of "Beirut Terraces" interior apartments, a project designed by Herzog and de Meuron. This allowed him to put to practice the tools he acquired in Switzerland.

Elie shares a particular interest for product design. He constantly explores the projects’ conceptualization by experimenting with materials and ergonomics. He believes that a project doesn’t end at the completion of its construction but continues as the user starts interacting with the product.

He designed several projects in Lebanon and abroad. Orient Express, a café bar in Beirut that he co-designed, has been opened to the public since 2014. Lately he was selected by Starch Foundation to design the 2015-2016 boutique.
