COLLABORATING WITH TASHKEEL
INDEX brings you a curated selection of design led furniture from some of the best emerging talent the UAE has to offer. Look closely at the showcase and share in the journey each new designer has taken with their pieces, of which each has been inspired by the surroundings of the UAE.
Established in Dubai in 2008 by Lateefa bint Maktoum, Tashkeel seeks to provide a nurturing environment for the growth of contemporary art and design practice rooted in the UAE.
Through multi-disciplinary studios, work spaces and galleries located in both Nad Al Sheba and Al Fahidi, it enables creative practice, experimentation and dialogue among practitioners and the wider community. Operating on an open membership model, Tashkeel’s annual programme of training, residencies, workshops, talks, exhibitions, international collaborations and publications aims to further practitioner development, public engagement, lifelong learning and the creative and cultural industries.
Tashkeel’s range of initiatives include: Tanween, which takes a selected cohort of emerging UAE-based designers through a nine-month development programme to take a product inspired by the surroundings of the UAE from concept to completion. Join us at INDEX 2018 to find your inspiration from these emerging UAE designers:
