Kursi Exhibition - Dubai Design Week
Year - 2018
Exhibited Alongside - Limited Edition Pantone Chairs by Vitra
Dubai, a technological and creative hub, has been a platform for innovation. Suspended is a testament to Dubai’s pioneering as a modern city of the future.
I had the honour to present my work at the region's largest design platform, Dubai Design Week. My university, the Dubai Institute of Design and Innovation (DIDI) partnered with Vitra, an internationally renowned furniture company to compose the ‘KURSI’ (meaning ‘chair’ in Arabic) exhibition.
Given just over a month to produce a chair, my initial concept parted into two complementary ideas, which resulted in ’Grounded’ and ‘Suspended’.
It was a delight to exhibit my chairs alongside limited ‘CHROME’ & ‘GLOW’ editions of the iconic Panton Chair.
