1/ one over, is a project that reflects our interest in the impact of the fabrication technique on the usage and perception of any given object.
1/18 Binding, explores binding techniques by creating 18 different notepads, each the same size and made of the same paper but bound differently, so that none of them open or fold in the same way, the experience of writing in each one becoming unique.
The notepads are sold each on its own or in a pack of 18, creating a unique palette of the binding techniques that are available on the Lebanese market, extremely useful for designers and book lovers.
1/ 12 Month is a re-envisaging of the yearly organizer. In place of a single book, 1/12 is divided into twelve monthly booklets. Bound together using an innovative fabrication technique, they can be detached but are sold bound as an attached whole. As the year progresses, booklets can be seperated and filed away for reference. Use it any year, it’s timeless.
1/ 366 Day is an ode to the “riznama”, the wall calendar that comes with a block of detachable pages, one for each day of the year. Often found in Lebanese homes, it traditionally bears religious imagery. For its part, 1/366 is resolutely secular. The pages of this one double as to do lists. Use it any year, it’s timeless.
1/18 Framing, explores framing techniques by playing on the way we perceive photographs. Each of the eighteen frames will display the same photograph in a different way, in the process subverting the primacy of the image itself.
1/12 Note, allows for a personalization of messages on balloon. Each pack contains 12 balloons printed with the same line pattern, allowing for the customization of balloons with hand-written personal notes. None of them look the same, as each becomes unique with its message. 12 times a note.
