UAE Design Stories: The Next Generation from The Emirates:

After a successful chapter in Milan in April, UAE Design Stories: The Next Generation from The Emirates returns with a new chapter during London Design Festival this September, supported by the UAE Ministry of Culture and Knowledge Development, supporting some of the best Emirati Creative talents.

For Chapter 2, entitled ‘Objects of the Past: Today’, we invite designers to delve into the historical photographic archives of the UAE and unearth pictorial history surrounding the regions nomadic roots. Designers are tasked to interpret pieces from the archives into modern day designs, taking their inspirations from the UAEs ancestors. The designers will bring to life products and pieces using modern day design methodologies and processes, showcasing contemporary interpretations of items that held great value to those nomadic families for whom travelling through deserts and oceans was inherent, and living in ever changing landscapes was a lifestyle.

Designers will create unique commissions for London, each inspired by this very exquisite and treasured archive, all with a direct link back to the UAE.
