HENRY DAKAK JR.

Ever since he was a child, Henry wanted to become a film director. His passion for cinema is reflected in many of his creations and scenic interiors. Driven by his artistic interests, Dakak pursued a degree in History of Art and Heritage Management at the University of Buckingham. He then returned to Lebanon to work alongside his parents and manage his father’s business. His family was always a source of inspiration, in particular his grandfather, a gifted mechanical engineer and inventor who owned a large furniture factory.
Attracted by machines and engineering, Henry turned the factory into a creative laboratory where he could combine his love of art and cinema with industrial aesthetics. The process of designing and forging his own creations begins spontaneously. Experimenting with all kinds of materials, Henry lets his imagination flow under the guidance of his intuition.
In 2010 he founded his own company, HHD Henry Dakak Jr.

Conserving the value of traditional techniques through handwork and know-how, Dakak is known for his contemporary revival of techniques such as cabinetwork and ironwork, in which he marries cold and warm materials, high-end sophistication with raw material beauty.

A firm believer that perfection comes from intuition, his work is defined by a continuous, unrelenting evolution. He creates in bursts of inspiration, creatively sourcing his material from used or derelict objects. In this second life, recycled objects and details are often estranged from their original function and personalized–“given a soul” as he might say.
