The Pavilion, Downtown by Studio M; photo by Sid Siva

The architect Abboud Malak and his Dubai-based practice Studio M have realised this understated contemporary cultural centre located in the downtown area of the city. Completed in 2010, the 12,000-square-foot open-plan Pavilion comprises two gallery spaces, a library, lounge, restaurant, screening room and a tucked away semi-enclosed ‘shed’ structure. Described by the architects as ‘an oversized container’, the Pavilion is devoid of any dividing walls – the modern furniture ‘plays a key role in dividing up the different spaces’ and includes a number of popular designs from manufacturers such as Foscarini, Cassina, Established & Sons, Magis, Accademia and Vitra.

'Bidoun' inspired by traditional Arab seating

‘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
