The exhibition, titled “432Hz” after the frequency which some argue provides a more natural listening experience than the standard 440Hz, will open at Zara Centre in Amman on May 12th. “An architect by training, I’ve always worked with raw materials and ‘behind the scenes’ of built spaces,” Naouri said recently, adding that, over time, he shifted his focus to the architecture of smaller objects — furniture — instead of buildings. It brought him to Jordanian wood and steel workshops where he immersed himself in the “symphony of wood and steel, and the tools used to reshape and mould them”, he said.

Get ready to be transported to the craft workshops of Jordan and brought closer to the process of creation through a dynamic, multisensory experience. The experience: The furniture display will be set to an original, experimental piece of music composed by Basel using sounds sampled from the steel and wood workshops in which his pieces are made. The furniture: Basel’s designs combine the roughness of raw materials with modern finishes to create pieces of furniture that give life to the spaces they occupy. The featured designs highlight the versatility and rugged beauty of steel and reclaimed wood from old homes, schools and other buildings throughout Jordan. Basel Naouri is a young Jordanian designer with a multidisciplinary background.

Indeed, it was the first major exhibition outside her native Lebanon for Choucair, who has died aged 100; even there, her shows were few and far between. As late flowerings go, it will be hard to beat. What made her story all the more extraordinary was that the Tate exhibition revealed Choucair to be an artist of international stature. The 150 or so works in the show, drawn from a 70-year career and mostly stored in their maker’s Beirut flat, had an elegance and rigour that had critics reaching lovingly for their pens. Yet few of them had previously heard of Choucair. The clue to the reason for this ignorance lay in Choucair’s name.
