Desert Cast: Towards an identity

A project by the three Kuwait-based designers

The Flag Island, Al Dhaid Flag Square and Khorfakkan Flag Square, Al Badayer Retreat, Al Madam, The Flag Island, Sharjah, UAE

This exhibition presents some of the original pieces of the series which showed at Abwab during Dubai Design Week 2018 at the Kuwait City Pavilion, the developed pieces commissioned by 1971 – Design Space and a visual story of the process.

The trio invited the UAE-based designer Talin Hazbar to express her interpretation of Desert Cast by investigating the architecture of the United Arab Emirates through her research. The results are showcased through public installations within the Emirate of Sharjah at the Flag Island, Al Dhaid Flag Square and Khorfakkan Flag Square. The public installations titled “Extractions” refer to the extractions of patterns on the façades of excessively designed buildings that surround us.
