Installations

A key element of Dubai Design Week was a number of design installations, placed in strategic locations across the city by renowned international and local designers. The installations aimed to challenge convention and explore innovation, illustrating Dubai’s creative diversity while promoting Dubai as prolific urban environment, a dynamic city where wonders and beauty can be found everywhere.

The installations carried a sense of belonging and ownership of the place where they were located that engaged and inspired a broad set of visitors. Each installation was built in Dubai and all were world debuts, identifying Dubai as a city that celebrates international and local talent and continues to push boundaries.
