Winner of TRKL Lab competition!

theOtherDada has won the TRKL Lab competition! Our proposal’s focus on simple interventions and in-depth look at the negative impacts of manufacturing on our local environment, led us to being chosen. Our work will consist in designing the space as well as researching and implementing sustainable and environmentally-friendly production techniques and materials.

One of the major factors of pollution of the Beirut river is the factories in the industrial area. We want to promote new types of manufacturing alongside the river to divert waste stream by using clean technologies, renewable energies, alongside reusing and reducing all waste.

The Lab’s aim is to help promote and empower Lebanese designers by providing them with the right tools, craftsmanship and community. It consists of a workspace to gather people and help them develop their ideas into concrete prototypes, as well as a fully integrated professional production facility to enable designers to expertly produce their designs, using the latest technologies and machinery.

This project is at its beginning phase, and will be launching at the end of 2017
