About Kawn Designs : Kawn Designs came to life through Rama Akel’s architectural journey that included interior design complimentarily. Her designs emerged from the needs, limitations, and specific circumstances of the moment, using those as an advantage. Her passion for art, design and furniture was influenced by nostalgic styles that speak to her childhood growing up in Amman. She reinvents what feels dear to us and brings it back to life in a contemporary image, connecting our past with our future. Her appreciation for the connection between the personal and the aesthetical has shaped her viewpoint of design and function. Believing that every object is personal and inseparable from a narrative has influenced her style and method, creating a unique, yet familiar space with an evident compassion for materials and subjects.
STATEMENT OF ART:
For mankind to move forward it must know and appreciate what came before it and how it paved the way for us to get to where we are and where we want to go.
