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