Sayyed Makkawi

Sayed Mekawy contributed a lot to Arabic music and the design of the room highlights just that. His music was known for its simplicity, but it always featured complicated, exciting musical components, which has made him one of the most prominent Arabic musicians in history. The room design reflects the marriage of simplicity and complexity through the wooden floor that was elevated to then become a desk. The Arabic letters engraved on the floor reference his song “The Earth Speaks Arabic”. One of his most important works is a radio collaboration with Fuad Hassad called the “Musaharti” (This character is now iconic and is known as the person that wakes people up for food before dawn in Ramadan). Consequently, the bedside tables resemble the “Tabla” (or drum), which is the only musical instrument used by the Musaharati.
