Destination At Downtown Design: Showcasing Stand-Out Design From Around The World
Downtown Design 2016The popular Destination at Downtown Design returns this October reaffirming Downtown Design’s position as a fair of global discovery and entry point into the international design scene. Launched at Downtown Design 2015, Destination will once more showcase emerging design brands from a fresh selection of international design weeks, this year:
 
Addis Ababa - Barcelona - Beirut  - Reykjavik - Taipei 
 
Downtown Design is held under the Patronage of Her Highness Sheikha Latifa bint Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-Chairman of Dubai Culture & Arts Authority and in partnership with Dubai Design District (d3). 
 
Each participating city will present a co-curated collection of their leading young brands, offering them a commercial platform and a unique opportunity to present their creativity and craftsmanship to the buyers, designers and visitors attending the event.
 
Rue Kothari, Fair Director of Downtown Design says: “We are thrilled to bring such a diverse mix of design weeks to the fair. Each will represent the spirit of their city; showcasing lighting, furniture and textiles, expressed with indigenous materials, traditional craftsmanship and a strong contemporary aesthetic that will both broaden the diversity of the fair, and provide a breath of inspiration for all visitors.”
