Considered the largest creative festival in Dubai, Dubai Design Week 2019 is currently shaking up the design world. Until November 16th, the six-day programme covers a range of design disciplines including architecture, product design, interiors, multimedia and graphic design, with the majority of events being free to attend and accessible for both industry and public. CovetED brings you the top 5 products you really can’t miss at Downtown Design, Dubai Design Week‘s main event.

Designed by Dubai-based studio Binchy and Binchy, this table was inspired by architecture and explores a design language that is truly Emirati. The tabletop is a reference to mashrabiya screens, a typical architectural element in Arabic residences.
4. The Shimmer Platter by Douxteel

According to designers Eason Yang, Yu Jun and Ellen Chan, this plate for Douxteel was inspired by the reflection of the moon on the water. “The full moon is like a wheel, a plate, or a mirror, and the softness of water has infiltrated the texture and layering of the moon,” they say.
5. Aurora, Marina, and Sahara Mirrors by Fernando Mastrangelo

Bringing his designs to the Middle East for the first time, Brooklyn-based sculptor and designer Fernando Mastrangelo launches three mirrors inspired by Dubai as an architectural oasis. Hand-dyed sand is the primary design material for this collection.
