Translated as ‘doors’ in Arabic, Abwab is an exhibition acting as a snapshot of design activity in the region and a highlight of Dubai Design Week.

Abwab is re-modelled annually, responding to new blends of designers and an evolving creative landscape. It is the only initiative of its kind to offer a united platform for design talent from across the Middle East, North Africa and South Asia.

In its fifth edition, Abwab will take place as a special feature showcase situated within Downtown Editions, demonstrating the next step in promoting and exposing emerging design talent to commercial opportunities and engagement with the design industry locally, regionally and internationally.
