It’s the most populated Arab Emirate as well as a ever-rising tourist destination for luxury and architecture lovers, as it’s the home of the world’s tallest skyscraper Burj Khalifa. Beyond being a hot spot for building sightseeing, Dubai is now ready to become one of the global design capitals, as it will host its very first design week in late October, when the city will be livened up by the most exclusive on-topic events. Organized by Art Dubai Group in partnership with Dubai Design District (d3) and Dubai Design and Fashion Council and, under the patronage of Her Highness Sheikha Latifa bint Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice Chairman, Dubai Culture & Arts Authority, Dubai Design Week – on from 26 to 31 October – will take the Emirates’ design to the international stage, by confirming Dubai as the emerging centre for modernity and style. To that end, Dubai Design Week will take place together with the third edition of the renowned Downtown Design, the fair that serves as the ultimate platform where to discover the best Middle Eastern and global design – including the new rising talents – and look for comprehensive business opportunities.
