Be­fore the city went into lock-down, we headed to Nasab, a mem­ber­sonly workspace and so­cial club nes­tled in Dubai’s Al Barari, to cre­ate a still-life shoot that cap­tured the in­ter­play be­tween light and shadow. Lensed by The

Na­tional’s An­tonie Robert­son, the story fo­cuses on the lux­u­ri­ous de­tail­ing of se­lect pieces, cho­sen specif­i­cally for qual­ity and, above all else, beau­ti­ful de­sign. And where bet­ter to show­case them than in Nasab’s strik­ingly mod­ern in­te­rior, cre­ated by renowned Bri­tish de­signer Fran Hick­man as “a space that blurs the lines be­tween live, work and play”. Rough gesso walls were the per­fect foil for Loewe’s plump bal­loon bag, and the sisal­cov­ered steps art­fully off­set the psy­che­delic pat­tern­ing on a Fendi dress. Chanel’s peachy Num­ber 19 bag, mean­while, played in the com­plex shad­ows of an Aca­pulco chair, as the carved trop­i­cal scene on a Dolce & Gab­bana bag sprang into vivid life against a pol­ished con­crete floor. We hope that our min­i­mal­ist story has max­i­mum im­pact. www.nasab­dubai.com
