Xena Kalouti was founded in Jordan in 2021 as a product brand celebrating eastern craftsmanship with an architectural modern sensibility. It is led by architects Khalid Jadallah and Xena Kalouti.
The brand focuses on the borderline between art, culture, and architecture to produce designs that explore traces of sustainable heritage, which have been absent from our everyday life. Through the exploration of materials, their aesthetic and structural potentials, and infused with architectural interests with a creative insight that especially focuses on revisiting local heritage, Xena Kalouti creates an intimate journey with a sense of history that lets objects speak for themselves.
