The only collectible-design fair in the MENASA region (Middle East, North Africa and South Asia), Design Days Dubai is returning for its fifth year, March 14 to 18. Exhibitors from 19 countries include the returning Carpenters Workshop Gallery (U.K./France/U.S.), Victor Hunt Designart Dealer (Belgium), Art Factum Gallery (Lebanon) and Gallery S. Bensimon (France), in addition to the newly arriving J.C.T Haute Couture Interiors (France), Camp Design Gallery (Italy), Barcelona Design Gallery (Spain) and Dutch Creative Industry (The Netherlands).
The fair will feature “Wasl,” an exhibit of design hailing from the UAE, in addition to partnership initiatives with Van Cleef & Arpels, for the fourth iteration of the Middle East Emergent Designer Prize, and with Tashkeel, for the third season of its design program.
“For the upcoming edition, we keep the diversity of the design creations as one of our main features,” said Cyril Zammit, director of the fair. “Reflecting Dubai’s unique position as a global meeting point, Design Days Dubai showcases design from around the world, in addition to design from the region. We have a unique format, which positions young emerging galleries alongside the renowned, providing a first-time opportunity to exhibit at an international level; and for design enthusiasts, the opportunity to meet designers from all over the world and acquire collectible design not seen anywhere else.”
