Dubai Design Week 2021 will offer a platform of opportunity for rising and established Lebanese designers and craftsmen to feature their unique works in two creative showcases across this year's festival.

Located within Downtown Design, The Beirut Concept Store will present both independent designers and emerging creatives represented by Exil - a new product design incubator launching at the fair.

Featuring a pool of Lebanese creative talent curated under the theme “I left my heart in Beirut“ by Mariana Wehbe, founder and creative director of MWPR, the showcase aims to offer an experiential journey into the heart of the Lebanese design scene, presenting the diversity of the city and its talent in its simplest form.

Beirut-based designers, architects and master ceramists will present a range of specially produced objects, from tableware and stationary to books and small gift items, to be made available to industry as well as public visitors.

On the weekend of Dubai Design Week, visitors can discover delicacies and crafts by artisans across Lebanon at The Marketplace, the outdoor retail experience in the heart of Dubai Design District (d3).

The Beirut Concept Store will be staged within Downtown Editions, 8-12 November, 2021. The Marketplace will take place as part of Dubai Design Week’s weekend programme from 12-13 November in d3.
