Paravent by Mona Hussein

Mona Hussein Illustrates The Positive and Negative Paravent

Mona Hussein, the maker of the award winning design Paravent by Mona Hussein explains, This Paravent is what you can call Function Art. The pattern used is inspired by the Arabian motifs and culture, yet the use of the Resin material gives a modern feel to it. The positive and negative statement shows how the effect of subtracting and adding shapes can be both an artistic and functional purpose. The purpose behind the design of this paravent is to preserve privacy with the ability of looking through, inspired by the concept of the Mashrabiya. The geometric patterns used are adapted and inspired by monumental Arabian architecture which is derived from the rich cultural heritage..
