11:15 - 12:00 Interior Designer Talk Series With Rabih Hage

Interior Designer Talk Series With Rabih Hage

Rabih Hage is an award-winning RIBA chartered architect and interior designer who divides his time between London, New York and the South of France.

Rabih designs on a human scale, from the inside out, taking inspiration from his clients and their personalities to create deceptively effortless spaces that are suffused with warmth, a subtle wit, and an exquisite feeling for volume, structure, light and colour. He sees little distinction between his practice as an architect and as an interior designer and his works blend poetry with pragmatism seamlessly.
