Dubai Design Week 2015 – The Best Of

During the inaugural Dubai Design Week we had the chance to witness local and international designs on the grounds of the “under-construction” Dubai Design District, as well as other locations across the entire emirate, such as universities, organisations, stores and galleries. Today we have listed some of the highlights of this city event, that are turning Dubai into an emerging international hub for art and design.
