The sixth edition of the Dubai Design Week, which was first launched in 2015, will take place from the 9th to the 14th to of November, 2020. This will be the first Dubai Design Week of its kind, as it will be taking place during a global pandemic. This situation is an opportunity for the organizers to innovate ways to successfully host an exhibition in a new global order.
According to their website, 2020’s edition of Dubai Design Week will revolve around the theme of inviting creative solutions for our new global reality. Continuing on the global collaboration seen during the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s Dubai Design Week aims to contribute to “re-imaging traditional processes and approaches for a better shared and fair future.”
This year’s Dubai Design Week will include all of the usual major annual attractions, such as installations, exhibitions, and talks. These features will all be adapted to include virtual components and of course, social distancing measures.
Downtown Design is the major component of Dubai Design Week, where brand debuts, product launches, installations, and ‘specially commissioned experiential projects’ all come together to create an enriching experience for visitors and designers alike.
