ALGHALIA INTERIORS have recently been selected to show some of their latest designs at Tent London – the East London hub of the annual London Design Festival, renowned for showcasing the best products from established independents and undiscovered talents.

ALGHALIA INTERIORS will be presenting a range of high-end products and furniture flirting with the current ethnic and geometric trends.

Geomatrix table – Matrix of geometric forms, the Geomatrix table blends conventional furniture legs and sleek forms in unexpected ways. Bold contrast between contemporary and Islamic design, this piece will stand out as a desk, meeting or coffee table.

Geomatrix light – Influenced by origami, the Geomatrix wall light incorporates the notorious Islamic forms in a playful manner. This minimalist piece will subtly defuse the light and cast geometric shadows on the wall bringing an intriguing and elegant feel to
the interior.

Sinan chair – Named after illustrious architect Mimar Sinan, the Sinan chair is a tribute to the Ottoman architecture, drawing inspiration from classic features such as domes and arches. Its refined frame and challenging structure make this chair a
cutting-edge piece for unique interiors.

Bloometric table – The Bloometric table features engraved floral patterns in a classic Islamic and geometric style.
Hence its name derived from the words “bloom” and “geometric”. Playing with the transparency
and the opacity of the glass, this coffee table will add a fresh and luminous touch to the living room.

The ALGHALIA INTERIORS and the MAY Concepts teams are delighted to invite you to discover the new collection in Hall T2 – Booth C14 between the 19th and 22nd of September at the Old Truman Brewery.
