Tasmena Studio and MENAlab 2010

Earlier this month, a week of amazing design events were coordinated surrounding the MENAlab , a series of labs where participants got get hands-on experience led by top design professionals from around the world. Beth and I participated in a panel discussion at the beginning of the week that was moderated by Joumana Al Jabr, the co-founder of Febrik NGO in Beirut. It was a fast-paced week of excitement and I wish every week could be so socially engaging and intellectually stimulating. But perhaps we would all become too exhausted.

Here are some photos from the last day of the lab series where the participants presented their work to the public. Giorgio and James would be very disappointed that it took me 3 weeks to post these since their lab was all about the immediacy of our interconnected social networked world!
