Named 1% Architecture, a tribute to a culture of anti-conformism, the workshop aims to offer a different approach to architecture and design. Its founder, architect Waldemar Faddoul, has a true passion for details and aspires to design buildings, spaces, and objects with a purpose, a soul, and a unique character.
The workshop believes that architecture should be at the service of man, not the other way round. Without architecture, there is no identity, and without design, each objet would merely be a dull and soulless repetition.
After several years of designing homes and furniture for clients, the workshop has come to develop its own DNA and eventually launched its own homegrown collection of multipurpose furniture, named 1% Design. These creations illustrate the workshop’s commitment to preserving and promoting local handcraftsmanship. Each design is the result of a synergy between industrial technologies and traditional artisan competence, thereby crafting tomorrow’s heritage.
