Message from the editor of ‘The Craft Issue’ – May 2024

by Dubaiforum

Craftsmanship is a timeless art form that permeates every aspect of our lives, blending tradition with innovation and heritage with contemporary flair. In the debut issue of our publication, we celebrate the magic of craftsmanship and its role in redefining design narratives from a third-culture perspective.

Our cover story shines a spotlight on the talented Emirati designer, Khalid Shafar, whose work beautifully intertwines local culture and crafts with contemporary aesthetics. His designs reflect a harmonious blend of past and present, showcasing a unique fusion of tradition and modernity. We also feature a curated selection of craftworkers from the Gulf region, each infusing their creations with their own distinctive third-culture sensibilities.

In our design focus segment, experts in architecture, interior design, furniture design, and interior styling share valuable insights on how to integrate cherished crafts with modern aesthetics. These insights aim to inspire readers to craft their own unique living spaces that reflect their personal style and appreciation for craftsmanship.

Venturing into the realm of interiors, we invite readers to explore a luxurious Dubai home where opulence meets elegance, and where every space is designed to inspire.

As you delve into the pages of this issue, we invite you to celebrate the transformative power of craftsmanship and the artisans who continue to push boundaries in the world of design. Let us embrace the beauty of design and the creativity it inspires, wherever it may lead us.
