Roula Dfouni shows her new collection Construct-Deconstruct at ORIGIN PASSION & BELIEFS concept fair in Vincenza, ITALY

Friday, May 15 – Monday, May 18, 2015

Roula Dfouni will be showing her new collection Construct-Deconstruct, inspired by the preciousness of our earth, which feeds our souls, nurtures our creativity and pushes us to greater heights. But our earth is dying. It is decomposing around us, exhausting its resources. Though our earth is resilient, and we are powerful. From the decay we can reconstruct a stronger earth. From the rubble we can construct a new earth. The Construct – Deconstruct Collection explores these themes and pushes their boundaries to offer a new perspective.

Along with, Roula Dfouni will be showing pieces from her previous collection, New Earth, inspired by the colors, forms and fluid grace of nature.

 

About the Designer:

After a decade spent in the business world, Roula Dfouni decided the time had come to embrace the true calling of her heart; the calling of art.

She dedicated the next years of her life to learning all she could about the future which awaited her, taking a series of intensive courses at ESMOD Beirut, and imbuing herself in every aspect of the world of art. While the materials Dfouni uses in her work are conventional, accessible, one could even say simple, the results are anything but. Geometric forms, which are a constant thread throughout her work, combine with the earthy, unfinished feel of rough gemstones, and the depth and tactile beauty of her silverwork, to create pieces, each one with its own distinctive personality.

Roula Dfouni’s pieces are sold in several shops in Europe, ME region and worldwide throughout her online platform.
