Emirates connects with the design community at 'Meet d3'

Posted 9 December 2016 · Add Comment

Emirates will make its design collaboration debut at the second edition of Meet d3, in addition to engaging visitors with on-ground experiences geared for all ages. Emirates will be in Meet d3 at the Dubai Design District which runs until 10 December.

Emirates recently collaborated with renowned jewelry designer and artist Nadine Kanso to create a limited edition collection called ‘Bil Arabi for Emirates’. Bil Arabi literally means ‘in Arabic’, and Kanso, a resident d3 artist, is famous for her distinctive use of Arabic letters and calligraphy to create her designs.

Inspired by the growing trend of calligraffitti, each product in the Bil Arabi for Emirates collection features the word ‘El Emarat’, or ‘The Emirates’ in gold Arabic writing. Visitors will have a chance to buy limited edition porcelain mugs, T-shirts, bags, decorative plates and much more. In addition, visitors will also be able to order bespoke limited edition ‘El Emarat’ bracelets and rings.

Another collaboration on display at the Emirates stand is emerging design studio, Alif Design, also based in d3. An exclusive limited edition “Meet d3 collection” will celebrate the diversity of Emirates’ iconic Cabin Crew. Merchandise including mugs, bags, cups, notepads, and plates, among other items will feature artistic illustrations of Cabin Crew, all of which will be showcased for the very first time at the Emirates stand. 

The Emirates stand will also offer visitors a chance to create their own personalised ‘emoji’ cubes. Visitors will be able to choose a cube, add their name or nickname, their hobbies, favourite food and other aspects of themselves then leave it to a special design team to create a fun cube, customized just for them. The cube will be made on site and visitors will be able to walk away with it on the spot.

Kids can explore aircraft design, from the fuselage to the wings, to build their own Emirates A380 paper airplane and take it home as a souvenir of their ‘aviation’ experience.
