Hamid Nicola Katrib is one of Romania’s most appreciated young architects. Born in 1982 in Bacau (Romania), Hamid spent his childhood in Lebanon, where he studied at Collège Notre-Dame du Balamand, and then graduated the Académie Libanaise des Beaux-Arts (ALBA) of Beirut. He completed his studies with the Interior Architecture Master degree at the same Académie Libanaise des Beaux-Arts and he received the “majeur de promotion” distinction.
In 2007, Hamid established in Romania and opened his own architecture and interior design office, Crea Decoration. His projects include re-brandings and decorating all types of spaces, from luxury apartments, casinos, pensions, holiday houses, to restaurants and stores.
Hamid Nicola Katrib’s projects have been published in the most important interior design magazines and brought him the 1st Prize at Insign Awards for two consecutive years, 2013 and 2014. His appearance in Romanian TV shows and his nomination in Forbes’ top ”30 under 30” helped him build the image of a professional exemplary in architecture and decoration.
As a extension of his artistic approach, Hamid developed as a painter. Furthermore, his paintings were transferred into silk accessories. So, here it is a brand named Efemere, after his latest varnishing day. This is a story of volatile emotions captured on delicate silk scarfs.
