Established in 2013, DAMJ began its journey in a historic stone-vaulted artisan khan-turned carpentry shop in the Gemmayzeh district of Beirut. In 2019, we were lucky to find a new home for our design office, workshop and gallery in Mar Mkhayel, an area historically known for its artisans of many trades. Despite the difficulties faced by the country as a whole, DAMJ has sought to serve as a hub for crafts of all sorts. Not only do we collaborate and share work with our large network of crafts-people across the country, but since 2021 we have used our gallery space to feature works from a wide range of artisans. It is this ethos, foregrounding the skilled local craftsmanship of the area, as well as our thorough integration of design and new fabrication techniques, that DAMJ brings to its clients.
