Meet the sponsors behind the 2018 designMENA Quiz

Get to know those behind the second round of the designMENA Quiz Night.

With the second round of designMENA Quiz Night just around the corner, to be held on 25 April at ON42 at Media One Hotel in Dubai’s Media City, interior designers and architects are gearing up for a night of trivia.

Industry professionals are invited to join the teams from designMENA, Commercial Interior Design and Middle East Architect and compete to wrest the title of ‘UAE’s Smartest Creatives’ from reigning champions LXA (aka the ‘Artistic Monkeys’).

For those who were not at last year’s quiz, it was presented by Dubai 92 Radio presenter Catboy (Simon Smedley) alongside his partner Lorra and featured seven trivia rounds, some focused on design and architecture, and others on general knowledge topics including music and movies.

Competitors also faced a creative round at the end of the night in which they were tasked with creating a piece of designer furniture using a single block of Plasticine. The winner was Draw Link Group for its ‘living room’ concept that was commended for its intricate detailing.

The participating design and architecture companies included Godwin Austen Johnson, Perkins+Will, Wilson Associates, Woods Bagot, LXA, Pallavi Dean Interiors, Bishop Design, Kristina Zanic, Aurecon, Brand Creative, 4 Space Design, Esra Lemmens Agency and Cracknell.

While this year we look forward to seeing the same companies, requests from new participants have been rolling in, ensuring the night will continue to serve as a great networking opportunity.

Although the following pages will introduce the night’s sponsors, which include OFIS, Herman Miller, Cosentino, Kohler and USM, there are still a limited number of sponsorship opportunities left.
