I recently had the privilege of attending the opening preview night of Design Days Dubai below the stunning Burj Khalifa courtesy of Beau McClellan lighting. See Modenus for my guest blog and photo gallery about the Emirates event with an array of photos from the 27 world renowned galleries that were represented.
The week showcased some imaginative displays of artistic recreations of daily objects which make a house both a home and museum. I have the privilege of working with one of the young artists/designers who created a piece for the event. Maysoun Abou-Houly is a recent graduate from the American Univerity of Sharjah and an intern at GAJ Architects. She has a passion for welding and shared with me her creation “The skeletal revolving bench” for Design Week.
Some of my favorite, pieces from the show included custom chandeliers, innovative lighting, room dividers and game tables. Seeing these collectible furniture pieces in person helped me truly appreciate the talent and craftsmanship that goes into luxury brands and the detailing that should be expected in contemporary luxury interiors.
