For its retail space at the Lobby Café, the Hilton Doha the Pearl Residences decided to focus on two Qatar-based designers and makers: Reema Abu Hassan of Clay Encounters, and Paula Bouffard of Touche textile. The creative duo collaborates to create joint collections tthat are showcased at Hilton the Pearl retail space.
As collaborators, Reema and Paula share ideas about functional objects, home rituals, and visual language. Their hand-crafted collection features a range of traditional and experimental practices combining quilting, block printing, silk screening, and natural dyeing for the textile pieces, in addition to wheel throwing, hand building, slip casting and glazing for the ceramics. A selection of superior-quality art prints made from Paula’s paintings completes the collection.
Expect a shopping experience in which handmade authenticity, originality and quality prevails, a place where to find one-of-a-kind decorative and functional objects.
The shop is at the Lobby Café at The Hilton the Pearl located at Abraj Quartier Pearl Boulevard Tower AQ-07. It is open from 7 am to 11 pm every day.
Reema and Paula’s art journey, a bit like life itself, is always shifting and evolving and the shop at Hilton the Pearl will definitely be the space to watch for in the coming months.
