Following graduation from London's Central Saint Martins, product designer Thomas Trad worked with Fredrikson Stallard and Michael Anastassiades before launching his eponymous design studio in 2015. Trad's fascination with the beauty of raw materials has led him to frequently collaborate with Lebanese craftsmen who specialise in brasswork.
Using copper as a medium to decorate the brass, which is often left to develop a patina, the designer reveals the true nature of each material, reflecting his dedication to both craftsmanship and manufacturing processes. In 2016, House of Today launches The Shop, in partnership with WallpaperSTORE*, to coincide with its third biennale exhibition, 'Jungle Protocol, traditional & etiquette', to promote Lebanese designers.
