Maison et Objet Celebrates Young Lebanese Talents


Anastasia Nysten grew up in Finland, France and Lebanon and settled down at the Lebanese Academy of Fine Arts, where she studied Industrial Design and later worked with Karen Chekerdjian. After three years working in London, she established her own studio in 2015. Today, working from Beirut and Dubai, Nysten expresses her multicultural background through her furniture and interior designs. Her latest renovation project will soon be unveiled in Helsinki, and her Troll chair earned her a Talent Award at the first Beirut Design Fair in 2017. The piece combined Scandinavian comfort with a bold look one of the characteristic features of her work, which systematically pushes formal research beyond the classics, but always makes use of natural materials, "It [my work] is shaped by everyday stories, by moments when I notice something, by thoughts that randomly merge together. I experiment with volumes, textures, behaviors. My goal is simply to find what makes us feel good," said Nysten.
