The region’s leading design platform brought together 500 established and emerging designers, architects and creators from over 40 countries to exchange ideas, inspire audiences and foster critical conversations that inform the design industry worldwide; from ancient practices and emerging technologies to documenting Arab visual culture and presenting design solutions for vulnerable communities, it once again highlighted Dubai’s strategic role as a platform to demonstrate the possibilities of what can be achieved through design.


De Yuan Kang, one of the architects behind Mitsubishi Jisho Design’s ‘Arabi-An Teahouse’ commented: “Dubai Design Week has been a great success for us. Witnessing the inspiring installations and interactions we had with audiences from all over the world has been a truly wonderful experience and we really do see how important the week is for the creative industry, not just in the Middle East, but for the rest of the world”.


Bahrain-based Sara Al Rayyes and the architect behind ‘Blessings of Iridescence’ noted "Dubai Design Week has always been the event that I look forward to visiting yearly; the endless opportunities, the engagement with the designers and visitors and the exposure that I obtained is what makes such an event successful."


Fatma Al Mahmoud, curator of UAE Designer Exhibition commented; “The exhibition has emerged as a pivotal platform for UAE based designers, showcasing a rich tapestry of talent that brilliantly intertwines cultural identity with sustainability. It’s a testament to the creativity and innovation inherent in our design community. This event has not only allowed both renowned and emerging designers and studios to prove their abilities to end users, but it has also set the stage for a future where our designers are celebrated as vital contributors to the global design narrative. I’m immensely proud of the journey and the remarkable achievements of all participants, who have showcased their unique visions and left a memorable mark on the design world.”


“So grateful to live in Dubai; nowhere else in the world has so much design power in one place and Dubai Design Week this year has delivered quality programming with so much to choose from.” commented Sandra Woodall, FRIBA, UAE Country Representative, RIBA Gulf Chapter.

Since its establishment in 2015, Dubai Design Week has earned international recognition, emerging as a prominent stage for emerging and established designers to exhibit their creations, engage with industry experts and gain visibility in region and beyond.
