Lebanese architects and sisters, Tessa and Tara Sakhi, co-founders of architecture firm T SAKHI, have created an interactive wall installation to address social barriers and encourage people to interact with each other. Consisting of a 15-meter liner wall, the installation named Wal(l)tz invites visitors to Dubai Design Week to interact through the various holes and cracks, and experience for themselves what it feels like to be removed from society figuratively and literally.
Based in Beirut and Milan, the architecture and design studio’s projects range from architecture and project design to installations and scenography.
And inspired by recent events in Lebanon and voices rising against oppression, their latest creation questions contemporary understandings of identity and human interaction.
The installation will remain open until 16 November.
