Downtown Design 2021: Dubai


The Middle East's leading design trade fair for original, high-quality design and limited-editions is Downtown Design, a key commercial event of Dubai Design Week and gateway to the design industry professionals including architects, real estate developers, interior designers and homeowners from across the Middle East, North Africa and Asia.

Located at the d3 Waterfront Creek in the Dubai Design DistrictDowntown Design included interactive discussions and presentations on what is the latest in the world of design by leading regional and international design experts.

With a pristine black and white-themed presentation, set up by ecofriendly furniture producer Staygreen and accompanied by Emera Design lighting, UNIQ·Ǝ!’s physical debut at Downtown Design certainly did not go unnoticed and was cited by many visitors as the most innovative, bespoke, consumer products of the entire hall.

FIOR DI LOTO by 967Arch was strategically positioned at the front of the booth, leaning into the center of the crowded hall, visible from the fair’s main entrance. With its copper lotus flowers and broken tube, intrigued passers-by stopped in their tracks when they learned it was a faucet. The immediate questions that followed were all the same: Where does the water come out?

The thrill of learning how and why the faucet was made, only amplified the curiosity of those visiting, eager to hear more details of the other 3 projects on display.

INK by MYGG stood majestically with its circular fluidity that encourages the union of hot and cold water, to mesmerize the crowd. Its powerful stance was accompanied with a TLC temperature compact thermostatic mixer handle which illuminates color according to water temperatures. The handle’s simplistic circular function, reminiscent of the iconic iPod click wheel, mimicked architect Gerardo Sannella’s brushstroke movement at the start of the project.

MIRELLA by Pasquale Piroso di Loft Canova posed in a very elegant yet flirtatious manner. People were drawn to the faucet with hands reaching to touch its smooth twisting body. There is something about the softness of spiraling metal that tempted onlookers. While UNIQ·Ǝ! presented MIRELLA with a natural steel finish, people were impressed to learn about the great effort to perfectly coordinate the velvety-gold color with the bespoke bathroom furniture for its actual installation in a luxury Lugano Villa.

ISCLA by Dodo Arslan boasted grandiosity when the product made a wardrobe change halfway through the show. The first ISCLA, displayed from Monday to Wednesday, was vested in a Mercedes grey body, flat wooden surface framed with stainless steel touch sensors accenting red and blue LEDs. Thursday, the podium flaunted a light silver body while the surface was decked in mother of pearl with its full natural range of white to pink coloring.

Thanks to UNIQ·Ǝ!’s collaboration with Computec, the product received a technological upgrade by implanting a multi-touch interface turning the water on and off, as well as controlling the water temperature in full coordination with a sensitive gradient LED. Located at the front of the booth, passers-by were eager to receive a demonstration of this stimulating, innovative piece which won the attention of those present, resulting in a true composition of a futuristic faucet design, never seen before in this industry.

Tactically each of the four faucets had their own story to tell and the visitors remained intent to listen to all of them with enthusiasm, caressing them with extreme delicacy. These faucets were more than innovative to many professionals and homeowners, and the acclaim received at Downtown Design 2021 declares UNIQ·Ǝ! as a brand capable of satisfying the demand of the Middle Eastern market in search of unique and bespoke pieces.
