Edi­tor’s Note

Design Middle East - - Contents - Happy read­ing! Roma Arora

We have closed an­other great is­sue with ex­clu­sive con­tent. The cover fea­tures the mar­vel­lous OPUS and the first look of their show villa, which is breath­tak­ing. One can clearly see the magic of late Zaha Ha­did in each and ev­ery de­sign de­tail. This edi­tion also has a colour­ful and in­for­ma­tive paints fea­ture with de­tails like trends, mar­ket con­di­tions, com­pe­ti­tions, and chal­lenges dis­cussed by the in­dus­try lead­ers.

World’s tallest ho­tel, Gevora, comes to Dubai and a wonderful pic­to­rial spread shows the con­tem­po­rary de­signs and el­e­gant dec­o­ra­tion of the ho­tel. March is a very im­por­tant month for the De­sign Mid­dle East team as we are gear­ing up for our first event—de­sign Fo­rum 2018 at W Ho­tel, Al Habtoor City in Dubai. This would be an ex­cit­ing plat­form for the in­dus­try to come to­gether, net­work, and dis­cuss key mat­ters of de­sign and ar­chi­tec­ture.

An­other in­ter­est­ing event com­ing up this month is the IN­DEX from March 26-29 , 2018 at the World Trade Cen­tre. The four-day fes­ti­val of de­sign would have re­gional and in­ter­na­tional brands com­ing to­gether un­der one roof with their lat­est of­fer­ings. Look­ing for­ward to this one for sure!

So, what re­ally caught my at­ten­tion this month is the new­est in­no­va­tion from Steel­case called SILQ. This chair re­sponds won­der­fully to the hu­man move­ments and I wish I could have one. Soon.
