After graduating from the American University of Beirut in 2014 with a bachelor degree in architecture and a minor in art history, Adrian Müller moved to London as a design consultant in the tech-startup space.
In 2017 the Lebanese-born designer returned to establish his practice in Beirut; a city unique in its intimate access to industry, manufacturing and skilled handicraft.
From architecture to jewellery, lighting to furniture & objects of desire, Müller’s work spans a wide range of scales and industries, employing precise, 'performative’ geometry in its construction and assembly.
Adrian Müller pieces are governed by proportion, materiality, gestalt principles, intuition, and innovation. Bold & captivating, the final products of Müller’s process are new, timeless, and inherently collectible.
Müller is based between Beirut & London and is currently developing a line of limited-edition eyepieces in collaboration with an exclusive luxury eyewear brand due for market in 2019.
