Beirut Art Center is happy to present Beirutkon, the latest exhibition as part of its series BAC design.

Beirutkon is a modern concept on products from Beirut. A collaborative effort by Lebanese designers, Beirutkon allows you to express your individual Beirut experience in your own inspired way.

Created during a workshop in 2009, the concept developed into an effort to offer an alternative to traditional souvenirs with a distinctive perspective on Beirut. All products are motivated by our way of living and created in our neighborhoods.
