As a socially-minded entrepreneur, Raja aims to addresses many issues with 2b Design. They provide marginalized individuals with opportunity by hiring them and paying above market wage; they support sustainability by diverting waste from the landfills; they’ve integrated initiatives that address cultural issues such as the existing tension among Lebanese communities or inaccurate perceptions of Middle Easterners in the West.
After moving to Lebanon with their children, Raja and his wife were inspired to transform the architectural salvage in Lebanon – wrought iron railings or wood frames – into authentic works of art. With this idea, 2b Design was born.
We’re not the only ones who love Raja and 2b Design! 2b Design won the Best of the Best Award for Social Responsibility, Ecological Sensitivity and Universal Design Awareness, and sells work to online customers worldwide and in upscale shops across the U.S., Europe and Japan.
