Form:Media and Ekistics developed a new logo and built environment for one of Halifax’s most respected Lebanese restaurants. 

Form:Media crafted a logo that drew on the parallel strokes in Arabic calligraphy. The wordmark was crafted by hand to emphasize the restaurant’s emphasis on homemade recipes and authentic ingredients. Ekistics oversaw every aspect of the build—from the preparation of drawings to the fabrication of components and overall construction management.

THE HANDMADE From the the handmade subway tile to the use of wood, the handmade is an important theme. Inspired by the simplicity of brass cooking pots and traditional water vessels on the subcontinent, Tom Dixon's Beat lamp was deliberately chosen to evoke Lebanese culture.
