Tashkeel selected four UAE-based designers for its 2014-2015 design programme which is to run until March 2015.
The designers chosen by a panel of internationally-established contemporary design experts include Talin Hazbar, Rand Abdul Jabbar, Saher Samman and Latifa Saeed.
Tashkeel annually selects talented designers from an open call, illustrating the initiative’s long term commitment to supporting local talent.
The programme is a joint venture between Tashkeel and UK-based PAL Labs to provide the designers with exclusive opportunities to work alongside established designers and curators through a series of workshops. Throughout the course of the programme, the designers have produced work individually and in group efforts.
The bespoke pieces will be showcased during the fourth annual Design Days Dubai running in March 2015.
