Local Industries was founded in 2011 by Elias and Yousef Anastas. Palestinian architects, Anastas’ were looking for a way to insert local craft techniques to their work. Their keen interest in furniture stems from their architectural practice. Local Industries’ goal is to offer an international clientele a piece of highly functional furniture crafted by local artisans. This endeavor aims to reassert the value of local Palestinian labor without freezing it in a traditional and obsolete role or mindlessly imposing alien standards on its method of work.
Local Industries thus hopes to bring a new impulse to dying crafts and industries all the while offering a type of furniture which is inscribed within a longstanding history of quality and also adapted to the world of today: objects which are simple and yet remarkably bold.
