‘Lithic’ lights by Dubai-based designer Talin Hazbar is made of a modular units, inspired by the mountains. The piece stems from a folktale (“kahf al daba”) that originates from villages around the mountain chains between Khor Fakan and Fujairah, which Hazbar translated into a modular system light installation. The tale speaks of interiors and exteriors of caves, the creature’s effect on their location, and the villagers’ curiosity and the beauty of the caves as organic spaces hidden within rigid landscapes.

Talin Hazbar was born in Aleppo, Syria and was raised in the UAE. She received her Bachelor of Architecture (B.Arch) from the American University of Sharjah. Hazbar defines herself as an observer. Her work is purely driven by her passion and ultimate curiosity for architecture and design. Since 2011, she found herself obsessed with the possibility of generating material culture through sand. You can see more of her work here.
