Creation in Times of Turbulence/ Disarming Design from Palestine

An ambitious, heart-and-soul-felt project is underway in Ramallah. Dubbed Disarming Design, a team of designers from the International Academy of Arts Palestine, ICCO, and Studio Devet, is collaborating in the development of a collection that incorporates the ancient traditions of their homeland, including carpentry, smithery, building and tailoring, to arrive at an authentic interpretation of contemporary ideas. Travelling cross-country to explore the workshops and learn about everything from traditional techniques to materials, these intrepid designers are proud to be producing what is deemed to be the very first collection of Palestinian products of the current time.
