DUBAI, United Arab Emirates – The region’s first and leading dedicated design fair, Design Days Dubai, returns for its third edition to deliver a diverse, exhibition-quality collection of compelling, highly-collectible modern and contemporary design pieces and installations, alongside a public programme with leading design personalities and industry experts, from 17 – 21 March 2014.

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates – The region’s first and leading dedicated design fair, Design Days Dubai, returns for its third edition to deliver a diverse, exhibition-quality collection of compelling, highly-collectible modern and contemporary design pieces and installations, alongside a public programme with leading design personalities and industry experts, from 17 – 21 March 2014.

Reflecting the growth of Dubai’s design landscape, Design Days Dubai has increased the number of exhibiting galleries by 20%, with 35 galleries bringing artistic and imaginative design creations to the fair – including several regional and world premieres of works. Being the most internationally-diverse Design Days Dubai to date, galleries from new territories such as Japan, Jordan, China, Austria, the Netherlands, and Pakistan, will exhibit alongside returning participants from Europe, North and South America, Asia and Australia, strengthening the fair’s global credentials and appeal to a broad base of collectors.

Along with transnational talents, the fair is proud to announce a strong presence of galleries from the region, including six from Dubai, three from Lebanon, one from Kuwait and Jordan each, as well as a university from Qatar.  Further emphasizing the status of Design Days Dubai as a hub for both emerging and established collectors, the fair will also see the premiere of many regional galleries, ranging from Naqsh Design House (Jordan), to Authentique Art Gallery (Dubai), and Coalesce Design Studio (Karachi).

Returning to the prestigious location The Venue in Downtown Dubai, next to the world’s tallest building Burj Khalifa, Design Days Dubai has the continued generous support of returning sponsors, including Emaar, Van Cleef & Arpels, Audi and the Dubai Culture & Arts Authority, working in collaboration to provide visitors with an opportunity to engage with pieces from new-comers and well-established designers.

New for 2014, Design Days Dubai will introduce an annual ‘Discover’ section; the first edition will be presented in cooperation with Institut Français in the UAE, and will be dedicated to giving four young and fresh design galleries from France an international platform to exhibit their works (Ymer&Malta; Galerie Gosserez; NextLevel Galerie and Galerie S. Bensimon).

The well-respected Galerie Yves Gastou has also joined the 2014 gallery line-up, together with returning market-leaders such as Carpenters Workshop Gallery, Southern Guild, _Croft, Industry Gallery and Victor Hunt. Design Days Dubai will again aim to produce a fair that inspires collectors, design enthusiasts, and members of the public to discover and interact with the works, and the creators behind them. The Crafts Council (UK) will return to present 10 UK-based designers, who have been selected after an open-call made especially for Design Days Dubai.

“We are proud to have curated the world’s most diverse collection of modern and contemporary design items, placing regional galleries together with international exhibitors – and blending inventive design techniques, practices, and skills into a world-class fair. Design Days Dubai has evolved and developed in harmony with the region’s increasing appetite for design, and reflects the host city’s status as a hub for innovative design and arts in the region, and beyond,” said Cyril Zammit, director of Design Days Dubai.

Extending the duration of the fair by an extra day, Design Days Dubai will again host a stimulating public programme of informative talks, panels and workshops, as well as live performances and special design installations, created to inspire and educate visitors about principles and innovations in design. In addition, there will be a series of ‘Design Stories’ events presented by the Design Days Dubai fair director in various key host cities in the region, launching in Bahrain on 12th December 2013.
