    DOT TO DOTS

    Designed in France. Made Locally.

    Dot to Dots designs and creates New Luxury in the form of locally made, limited edition state-of-the-art objects and furniture pieces. Dot to Dots, founded by Marc Baroud on the principle of integrating sense-making and efficiency, strives to reduce waste and footprint by reimagining the value chain and developing a more agile model, all while improving product quality and making exclusivity more accessible. 

    Experience, originality, craftsmanship, high quality and sustainability drive Dot to Dots. The basic idea behind this brand lies in the creator's vision and the savoir-faire of experienced craftsmen. Each of its series results from a core system: which includes a function and modular shapes,  customizable for specific orders in different configurations, sizes, and finishes.

    The debut collection designed by Marc Baroud includes seating, tables, storage, and lighting to complement any home. Their modernist materials (aluminium, glass, marble, steel, etc.) are sourced meticulously by the designer from independent and global companies in Europe and the Middle East; the manufacturing sites in Belgium, Italy, Lebanon, and Portugal are also expanding.

    Marc Baroud

    Marc Baroud is a cross-disciplinary designer based in Paris and Beirut. His zeal for new ventures prompted him to apply his design method to various projects, including those that are seemingly unrelated to design. His projects include commercial architecture, scenography, interior design, furniture, service and development. Baroud developed and managed the Design Department at Académie Libanaise des Beaux-Arts from 2012 until 2017. His goal was to reform design education while maintaining his design approach.

    Away from the form follows function paradigm, Baroud designs objects employing a method he calls materisation, which he defines as the transition from the state of an idea to the state of an object. In addition to his works exhibited in Beirut, Brussels, Dubai, London, Milan, Paris, Design/Miami and Design/Miami Basel, his pieces are also part of private and public institutions, including the permanent collection of the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris.
