WINNER: Highly Commended Design Award 2017 and The Keith Kindell People’s Choice Award 2017.
Inspired by history and heritage of UAE and GCC in general, Rahaal is your locally inspired friend that sheds light on poems that were told under the moonlight with a cup of coffee and great company.
Each component is designed to showcase the passion of this place, movement of the moon has always been vital for travel, time and religion…. Using stained Anigre that depicts the glistening of the sand dunes. One must not forget the geometric pattern inspired from the interlocking weaves a long lasting tradition across the local craftsmanship.
From the saharan trips our piece took place, it introduces different materials particularly the use of coffee grounds as a finishing material… and the best part is: it retains its smell!
Rahaal is made out of scraps and off cuts, it is bluetooth enabled to control the glow level and very easy to assemble!
