About This Artwork

"There’s always room for one more book in any home.

The Roads for Life First Aid Kit was designed into a red book with its own custom shelf. 

The First Aid items are neatly put away in an elastic grid organizer inside the open book.

 The many straps allow for adaptability and flexibility in the arrangement of the items. 

Conceived around the dimensions of the book, the bookshelf is a minimal intervention in thin sheets of metal and the vertical structure dividing it acts as a book holder. 

The reflective back further accentuates the liminal effect and highlights the Red Book.  "

  • About Mariagroup

    "MARIAGROUP is a design studio led by the brother and sister duo Georges and Michèle Maria. 

    Michele graduated from the American University of Beirut with a Bachelor in Architecture in 1999, winning the Azar Award and Areen Award for Excellence in Architecture. 

    When Georges completed his Master of Architecture from the Academie Libanaise des Beaux Arts in 2003, the two joined their interior designer mother & father to establish MARIAGROUP.

    Based in Beirut, the practice undertakes works of all scales, spanning from small interior projects to large urban plans, throughout Lebanon, the Middle East and Europe and is closely involved in the design and follow-up of each project from conception to delivery. 

    MARIAGROUP begins all projects from a standpoint that is decidedly architectural, interested in responding to each brief through thinking about space. 

    The design of Space, crafted through light, material, texture, and form, informs our projects from the smallest to the largest scale, and delineates a common language through which we address the questions that we feel are intrinsically linked to the practice.

    Deeply committed to the understanding that architecture is shaped by a collaborative confluence of design ideals, tectonic (or material) knowledge, and (construction) craftsmanship, we seek to create for each project a unique world of real physical experiences.

    Our work stems from this desire: to translate need into built form and create a sense of excitement; to craft a story of everyday life into a poetic and unexpected gesture."
