Once Upon DESIGN: New Routes for Arabian Heritage

Curated by Noor Aldabbagh

A select group of makers have collaborated to unearth and experiment with elements of heritage from the Arabian Peninsula, working through their contemporary design practices across the fields of architecture, product and graphic design. They produced seven installations proposing various new routes and sensibilities responding to age-old traditions and customs by enhancing, altering or subverting them. Reflecting a unique moment in the Gulf contemporary design scene, this is an exhibition to see, experience and touch.
