In­stal­la­tions that caught our eye at DDW (Nov 14-18)

Khaleej Times - - NATION -

Ara­bic for ‘doors’, it is a mesh-struc­ture in­stal­la­tion made of un­used bed springs. Let the doors lead you into a world of art with 47 unique de­signs from 15 MENASA coun­tries. Keep an eye out for Sa­har Madanat De­sign stu­dio’s smart and un­con­ven­tional salt and pep­per shaker that makes food sea­son­ing easy and stylish! > ICONIC CITY: Load­ing…Casa: Cu­rated by Salma Lahlou, step into the ex­hi­bi­tion and see the lines be­tween Moroc­can and Emi­rati cul­ture blur. Five Moroc­can de­sign­ers recre­ate the essence of Casablanca, with images, sound record­ings, a short film, a draw­ing, and con­tem­po­rary pho­tog­ra­phy, all rem­i­nis­cent of Morocco’s largest city. > A bed that’ll help you get rid of your bad dreams: 17 iconic Ital­ian brands come to­gether for Ital­ian lux­ury in­te­ri­ors, an ex­hi­bi­tion for ar­chi­tec­ture and de­sign en­thu­si­asts. Step into a world of unique lux­ury fur­ni­ture; a bed made of cork that “drives away bad dreams”, and Ital­ian-style glass chairs, in­cluded.

Yet an­other hard-tomiss out­door in­stal­la­tion, this is a gleam­ing cir­cu­lar sculp­ture in the cen­tre of Dubai De­sign District with more than 8,000 topaz­coloured crys­tals. The sculp­ture highlights a decade of Fredrik­son Stal­lard and Swarovski’s de­sign col­lab­o­ra­tions.
