Rawan Chamoun’s design journey, which began at LAU and later spanned across the MENA region and Milano over the years, has greatly influenced her approach to the design of multi-cultural environments. From the beginning of her design journey, her passion for design has been fueled by her immense interest with her surroundings and thinking beyond what the eye can see. As both an interior designer and a product designer/developer, Chamoun’s approach to design is based on a framework where concept is the key component in the creative process. Her overall design outcome is the result of her intuitive perceptual abilities along with the constructive design methods that she has been trained to practice which progresses with her constant search for new design languages. Her aim as a designer and a professor is to continuously be responsive to the needs of alternating students through creating innovative and diverse teaching methodologies.
