Held in partnership with the Dubai Culture and Arts Authority, Design Days Dubai presented between 4-17 March 2017 a cross-section of the world’s most exciting design of 125 designers represented by 50 exhibitors and over 350 works from 39 countries, alongside innovative premieres and special projects.
Visitors experienced the vast variety and creativity
Uniquely positioned as a fair of discovery, visitors experienced the vast variety and creativity that mark design today as well as having the opportunity to meet many of the designers and learn about their design process.
In support of the UK-UAE Year of Creative Collaboration, the Dubai Culture & Arts Authority, the Emirate’s dedicated authority for Arts, Culture and Heritage, will host an exhibition of British contemporary design with Design Days Dubai. Curated by Suzanne Trocmé, author/curator/Editor-at-Large of Wallpaper* Magazine, ‘Britain Takes Shape’ featured the work of 10 pioneers of British design. All of the designs on display have been produced in the UK as one-off pieces or in batch production and are shown for the first time in the UAE. Running alongside the exhibition, will be a series of talks and workshops hosted by the British-based designers, giving unparalleled access to UAE audiences.
