Lel for O'de rose

Lel, an artistic collective dedicated to preserving, reinterpreting and evolving the ancient art of hand crafted stone inlay, Pietra dura, exhibits for the first time in the Middle East at one of Dubai's most loved concept stores, O'de rose. Under the creative direction of Meherunnisa Asad and in collaboration with local and Afghan craftsmen and artisans in Peshawar, Lel marries traditional craft techniques with contemporary design and a colourful array of semi precious stones and marbles locally sourced from the mountains of Pakistan. "A Lel piece does not start in the studio. It starts in the mountains millions of years ago. You never start with a blank canvas in the art of stone inlay," says Meherunnisa.
