Andre Mcheileh studio was established in Amman in 2020, by a Lebanese graduate of art direction of the same name, Andre Mcheileh. Motivated to design a shorter supply chain and simpler methods of production, Andre rooted local know-how at the heart of each of the pieces created. Each product is a direct relationship with the city he now calls home. Syrian, Jordanian and Palestinian makers combine to forge their expertise into fully locally made products reflecting the social landscape of the Jordanian capital, whilst Andre seeks to develop a language that draws associations between design and the craft industry.
Andre gathers inspiration from nature, personal encounters, cinema, fashion, architecture and the sensorial richness and subjective meaning of materials.
