Referring to horology, a movement is known as a “calibre”, in few words it’s the “process of time”. “Calibre 32” is the wheel train transmitting the force of the power source to the escapement; in our case, back in time to the glories of Lebanese civilization, age of the old architecture and the traditional tiles rarely existing nowadays in Beirut, creating an interactive asset for a successful concept where structures, shapes, patterns materials and colors meet.

“Calibre 32” is a circular stool composed of multiple leftovers wooden pieces varying in sizes, accumulated together in order to form the base and the top using vintage joinery in an artisanal marquetry style. This concentric combination of 32 elements makes an entire entity. The main objective of the concept is to urge our society with its different religions, doctrines, mentalities, communities, etc. to get united; once united, we make the difference keeping the wheel moving straight forward to improve.
