Design Days Dubai 2017 Almost Here!

Returning for its sixth edition, the Design Days Dubai 2017 presents the collectible modern and contemporary design work of 125 diverse creatives.

Returning for its sixth edition in a new location at Dubai Design District (d3) with the largest number of exhibitors to date (50), d3 is the Middle East and South Asia’s only annual fair dedicated to collectible modern and contemporary design works.

Returning for its sixth edition, d3 is the Middle East and South Asia’s only annual fair dedicated to collectible modern and contemporary design works, this year taking place from March 14-17, 2017.

Positioned as a fair of discovery, the fair’s unique format provides an international platform for the region’s emerging design studios and furniture makers to debut their contemporary designs, featuring them alongside an eclectic mix of the world’s leading design galleries.

“Reflecting Dubai’s unique position as a global meeting point, Design Days Dubai showcases design from around the world and we keep design diversity as one of our main features this year. There is exciting, and often experimental, work being produced by designers who aren’t necessarily represented by galleries and the fair offers an opportunity for solo designers and independent studios to exhibit at an international level. For design enthusiasts, Design Days Dubai is an annual fixture to meet designers from all over the world and acquire collectible design not seen anywhere else,” said Rawan Kashkoush, Head of Programming.

The fair remains a catalyst to the development of the design community in the UAE and the wider region and is a well-known launch pad for nascent designers. In 2015, Aljoud Lootah had two items from her debut collection acquired for the permanent collection of the National Gallery of Victoria (Melbourne); and, in 2016, two of Amar Kalo’s pieces were acquired by the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum in New York.

We’re so excited for the sixth edition! Stay tuned…
