Last year’s edition of Downtown Design Dubai was the first international design trade event held in the Middle East – this year we expect an even better trade show. (check out the best of the first edition of Downtown Design Dubai). From tomorrow to Friday, Dubai will be the stage of new and exciting product launches and talks in partnership with Dubai Design District. Here is a bit of what you can expect.

Downtown Design, the Middle East’s platform for original design, opens its door for the second time from 28 – 31 October, 2014 to give quality-driven brands access to the rapidly growing market of the gulf region.

Groundbreaking Technology – Royal College of Art (RCA) will be presenting the three top student projects that are among today’s most promising technological breakthroughs. Each having the potential to revolutionize the design industry while having transferable applications into the medical and bio-physics fields.

Today, we are experiencing the integration of technology with design to produce breakthroughs that have far-reaching implications. Even within traditional design disciplines, we are far more attuned to interconnectivity. In my field, for example, interior design influences and communicates with the architectural exterior of space in a way that is far more meaningful than ever before,” – said Ab Rogers, head of the Interior Design Programme at RCA
