The Beirut-based designer approaches each project with the eyes of a gallerist.

Claude Missir’s work veers toward a zen-like simplicity. The otherwise minimal and often symmetric spaces are revved up by his masterful selection of vibrant art and unexpected sculpture, curated to offset handpicked contemporary and retro furniture. In keeping with the codes of the French Modernist designers from the 1930s, he explores spaces as set designs, marrying flowing profiles with clean lines, monochrome with bursts of colour and bringing disparate eras together with panache.

From prestigious Parisian homes to coveted neighborhoods in Jordan, from bespoke schemes for luxury yachts and hotels to creating sculptures for Nilufar Gallery Milano, Missir’s signature is evident in all that he does.
