Kashida

When it comes to Arabic type, very few designers can master it. Now arabic type fused with furniture and that is one gold mine of an idea. Kashida has effortlessly designed a product and furniture line inspired entirely by Arabic letterforms. Embracing the various calligraphic and typographic styles of Arabic, these products are definitely making their way onto my summer wishlist.

lounge chairs in the form of the Arabic letters M and Ta

Oh wow, these are super cool! I'm a type designer as well as a book binder, and I spent a couple years in the Middle East learning Arabic...so I love letters, and Arabic ones especially! Thanks for sharing!
