American University of Dubai's Professor Chadi El Tabbah presents a furniture and product collection inspired by the mathematical patterns and Kufi calligraphy of the Alhambra Palace in Granada.

The GEOMéTRICO collection reflects the opulence of Granada, a melting pot of flavours, smells and passion, by using the technique of the modern stained glass on porcelain surfaces. The exhibition is aimed at the design community, the general public and the staff and students of the American University in Dubai (AUD).
