The ibrik is a traditional Lebanese spouted water vessel with ties to Lebanese cultural heritage. Its production started as early as the Phoenician period in the Mediterranean area. While this object was once common to every household in Lebanon, today the ibrik is rarely used as intended. It either no longer exists or serves merely as decoration. The following project aims to redesign the ibrik through its animated cultural heritage as a craft and as a drinking vessel by embedding it with a contemporary visual dynamism.
