Design Days Dubai (from 16 – 20 March 2015) will return for its fourth edition with record number of galleries.
 With 44 exhibitors from 20 countries, this edition will present purchasable and highly-desirable works of modern and contemporary design to the Middle East and South Asia.

Aa a symbol of the growth of the design landscape in the UAE, Design Days Dubaiincludes 22 returning exhibitors, such as Carpenters Workshop Gallery (Paris/London), Southern Guild (Cape Town), Artfactum (Beirut) and Broached Commissions (Melbourne). The appeal of the fair is confirmed by 11 first-time participants including David Gill Galleries (London), Gallery ALL (Beijing/Los Angeles), Chamber NYC (New York), Galerie Silbereis (Paris).
Design Days Dubai continues to support the Middle Eastern design industry through exhibiting a record number of 16 design studios, galleries and design professionals based in the Emirates and wider GCC. These include the first participation of 1971 (Sharjah) and 19th Century Antiques (Dubai), as well as the launch of Aljoud Lootah Design Studio (Dubai). Additional Middle Eastern representation can be seen through the participation of Authentique Art Gallery (Dubai), Cities (Dubai & Riyadh), Naqsh Design House (Amman) and Nakkash Gallery (Dubai), together with Tashkeel (Dubai), Fatima bint Mohamed bin Zayed Initiative (Dubai & Abu Dhabi), Faddi Sarriedine (Dubai) and jewellery from Shamsa Alabbar (Dubai).

“As the event grows year on year, Design Days Dubai continues to cultivate recognition and awareness for design in the region, serving to establish Dubai as a global cultural hub.” said Cyril Zammit, Fair Director of Design Days Dubai. “The fair offers design enthusiasts the opportunity to not only meet international designers, but also acquire collectible design and enhance collections for private and corporate use.”

Other highlights of the 2015 programme will include a 10th anniversary celebration of Lebanese designer Nada Debs, as well as the regional opening for a new series of vases presented by Wiener Silber Manufactur by Iraqi-British architect Zaha Hadid, who will also have distinct ‘liquid’ table works shown by David Gill Galleries (London).
