‘Design for Good’, an initiative by d3 and Dubai Cares, and The American Hardwood Export Council, held a competition for local designers to create furniture designs that give back. The winning entry, Sakina Kara-Sabur and Alicia Spoljar’s Reading Bench, sat proudly at the fair. The concept behind the design was to encourage thought, knowledge and harmony through sustainable hardwood design, Props for aesthetics that resemble a traditional dhow, combining history with modernity. 100 pieces of this limited edition series are now available for purchase, and all proceeds go to Dubai Cares.
So our point is… buy a bench and give a child a seat in a classroom.
