TRIPOLI DAY
Tripoli Craft Tour & UNIDO Urban Furniture Exhibition

In collaboration with Mira’s Guided Tours, BDW is organizing a tour on some of the oldest and still functioning local crafts in Tripoli, formerly famous for its manufacturing and artisanal sector. The aim of this tour is to introduce the new generation of designers as well as the general audience to those traditional local crafts with an attempts to reinforce designer / craft collaborations.
 
After the tour, in the Al Mina region in Tripoli we launch the series of site specific urban interventions in multiple public spaces. This project is a result of an Open Call launched by UNIDO and BDW where designers and students worked closely with carpenters from Tripoli on the design and production of their pieces.
