The Emi­rati sis­ters Alia and Noora Al Suwaidi are the duo be­hind Artbox, a de­sign stu­dio based in Abu Dhabi. The sis­ters launched the com­pany around five years ago, with a fo­cus on graphic de­sign. It wasn’t un­til Abu Dhabi Fash­ion Days, which took place last month, that the two of­fi­cially launched their line of quirky, high-qual­ity paper prod­ucts, plas­tic fold­ers and cush­ions. Alia, who comes from a vis­ual com­mu­ni­ca­tions back­ground, was in­spired my her older sis­ter. “I had a pas­sion for graph­ics be­cause she went into that,” she says of Noora, who is nine years her se­nior. Artbox prod­ucts are cur­rently avail­able from In­te­rior 360, Ga­leries Lafayette, The Dubai Mall and Maska Wraps in Jumeirah.
