BIO - Najla El Zein

 

Born in Beirut in 1983 and raised in Paris, Najla graduated with a Master Degree in Interior Architecture and Product Design from Ecole Camondo in 2007.

 

Her first project consisted in creating several scenographies for the Salon International de l'Alimentaire (SIAL) in Paris Nord Villepinte and Palais des Congrès de Paris in 2006 and 2008.

 

During this period, in collaboration with other designers in Paris, Najla investigated other fields and mediums of creativity including experimental cinema, ceramic design, motion and sound design.

 

In 2008, Najla moved north to Rotterdam, The Netherlands.

 

In Rotterdam, she was involved in diverse projects: from film designs, illustrations, scenographies, interior architecture, urban concepts and product design. Her work was exhibited and published at the International Architecture Biennale of Rotterdam, Hong Kong Shenzhen Bi-city Biennale of Urbanism and Architecture, The Why Factory

 

Her work focuses on mixing different mediums in order to create a multi-faceted environment for her projects.

Najla is now based in Beirut and got selected by Starch to create in the boutique a ‘scenography’ installation for this coming Autumn-Winter 10/11 season.
