This interactive installation is a visual representation of the locally known game, "Dessaise". The game is played by three or more kids though hiding and seeking each other within the old Emirati courtyards. The stand-alone sculpture allows for the hiding and seeking one self’s reflection though the panels' mirrored reflection. The elements of the design where taken from the well know architectural details of old Emirati houses and courtyards. The panels are placed with 30 degrees angles tilted from each other to achieve a contradictory scenario; to hide, and to seek. From one side, all panels reflect the standing person/ object representing the concept “Seek”. On the other hand, The back side seems to have a protruded angle of mirrors reflecting multiple reflections of the standing person/object where it is difficult to have a clear reflection, representing the opposite scenario of the game that is to “Hide”.
This is a custom designed table for specially for Arabic Calligraphy. The concept is derived from the art it self were it is basically outlining lines and defining arabic letters within the context of arts. This drawing table can easily be adjusted to the angle the artists’ are working with. It works as a light box at the same time to. The lighting fixture is also used as information light underneath where it can be switched on and off.
Kallis is a sculptural illuminant created by the beauty of marble where central light source accentuates natural marble grains and diffuses light for a very personal space despite its large scale. Inspired by the one and only breathtaking symbol of growth, burj Khalifa. Both burj Khalifa and Kallis are inspired by hymenocallis flower found in the region. The name Kallis comes from the Greek word “Callis” which means beautiful. The letter K is to refer it to Khalifa. Each sectional plan of the burj was taken and extruded to a golden section ration 1.618 upwards and downwards. A touch of excitement is added as well through the 60 degrees rotation of each section resulting in a stunning lighting effect. The purpose of the design is to demonstrate the infinite dimension of Growing Beauty.
The design of the particular bedroom was a mind opening experience since it is my first project to be manufactures. The messege that I want to convey through this design is the transition to a different world of calmness and solitude. It is a depiction of a day on the Maldives beach. The pattern on the headboard reflects this idea through the combination of organic and straight lines. The rest of the bed design remains contemporary and sleek with floating side tables.
The main element of the design is the 360 rotating partition that rotates towards the bed and sitting area. As for the kids corner, it was designed to complement the room giving them maximum calmness.
The proposed structure consists of a series silhouettes of the walls and extruding them as a series of frames. The central frames extrudes outwards creating a hall for the visitor to get an introduction to the gallery and exhibition. Its design is inspired by the veranda Mashrabiya pattern of the Fort. It creates an extra surface for vertical signages as well . This approach is low-profile, accentuating the beauty of the original building. It also has almost zero drilling and wall/ floor fixing.
