‘Bidoun’ by Katrin Greiling is a collection of upholstery furniture, created for the Bidoun Lounge during the ArtDubai 2009.

For this line the German/Swedish designer, who recently became Director of Industrial Design at Traffic, the 2007 founded art and design practice in Dubai, studied the lifestyle and traditions of nomadic Arabs and developed a new contemporary interpretation of the original Arab seating.

Details like the cord are inspired by the Bedouin tent, the variation of upholstery fabrics is chosen to reflect the random availability of patterns and is a symbol for traveling and the different cultural influences in Middle East.

The upholstery fabrics are by Kvadrat and Maharam
