Born in 1973 in Lebanon, George Mohasseb is an architect and designer who graduated with a Bachelor in Architecture from Washington D.C before studying in Ecole Boulle in Paris and Domus Academy in Milan.
His passion for design has brought him to work within intensive workshops and to teach in many renowned institutions in Europe and in the U.S. In 2007, he set up his own business "Wood&" in Paris, France, working on projects focused on wood, his favorite material. In 2013, he participated in PAD London along with Smo Gallery, which represented his work. In 2014, he participated in PAD Paris.
The presence of wood is always prominent in many of his designs due to its connectivity, its liveliness and its texture. Georges Mohasseb, through his experimentation of materials and textures tries to look for the best possible combinations. His constant search for immateriality characterizes his design approach and gives an identity for every project he develops, be it architectural, custom, furniture or lighting design projects. Georges’s main concern is to create timeless designs maintaining a high level of craftsmanship and a complex expression of materials through their colors, shape, texture and smell.
