Marina Home’s design initiative, Project Remake is back for its second edition, offering senior design students the opportunity to showcase their skills and to be recognised by the industry.
A panel of judges, including Maryam Al Suwaidi and Sulaiman Al Thehli, Founders of Design talk, an Interior Design Studio; Tarik Al Zaharna, Director, T.ZED Architects; Maliha Nishat, Design Director, DWP UAE; Manuel Arnaut, Editor In Chief – Architectural Digest, Sahil Vakil, Director – Procurement, Marina Home Interiors and Karl Schwitzke, Founder, Schwitzke & Partner, have trimmed the entries down to a shortlist of 10 finalists, whose designs will go to a public online vote after the summer to arrive at the final winner.
The winner of this year’s challenge will be awarded a three-month long internship at industry pioneer Schwitzke Group’s headquarters in Dusseldorf, Germany while the Top 10 installations will be exhibited on the night of the Commercial Interior Design Awards on September 21 at Conrad Hotel.
“Project Remake was introduced as a program to nurture the immense design talent in our community. It provides them with the recognition to push their boundaries, inspires them to pursue their passion through mentorship, and helps them realize their individual ambitions through training alongside the best in the industry; ultimately providing a springboard to advance their design careers,” says Sahar Vakil, Head of Brand Development at Marina Home.
For this year’s competition, Marina Home has partnered with American University in Dubai, Heriot-Watt University Dubai, Manipal University and Zayed University Dubai.
