Designed by Katrin Greiling during her residency at traffic, this line was created for the Bidoun Lounge at Art Dubai 2009 and inspired by the nomadic Arabs (Bedouins) and their furniture and lifestyle. The sofa system involves several mattresses stacked onto a base and fixed with cord. The cord comes from the same inspiration source - the Bedouin tent. It expresses the flexibility and mobility of the design.
Local is a new line of furniture, clothing and objects that aims to facilitate design in the United Arab Emirates, encouraging designers to produce their pieces here, using local materials and resources.
