TAREK SHAMMA

London-based architect Tarek Shamma started his career under Zaha Hadid and David Chipperfield, and has gone on to design and build concept stores, retail spaces and private residences across Europe. His frequent collaborators include Christian Louboutin, for whom Shamma has created both boutiques, elaborate retail displays and showstopping home spaces. His sense of geometry, seamless lines and graphic purity reflect his Egyptian heritage, projected outwards onto a world of aesthetic possibility.
