September will see one of the Middle East’s Largest Interior Exhibition, INDEX DUBAI, return for the second edition in 2018 – offering up a twist on the traditional show and an exploration of one of the most significant design journeys of all time.
Taking place at Dubai World Trade Center, Index Dubai new theme will take visitors on a journey from east to west as a form of celebrating ‘The Silk Road‘ and the colors and patterns that represent the historical trade route that lives on to this day
Samantha Macdonald, INDEX S DUBAI Event Director explained: “We have chosen a theme that offers a direct representation of where our September exhibitors will come from. The Silk Road takes its name from the trade route that started over 2,000 years ago and still exists today, joining Europe to Asia, through the deserts of the Middle East.
“Index Dubai will focus on individual designs and value-driven products from Asia, sat alongside premium products from Europe. Together, they will allow the show to present a wide selection of interior products that should suit all the interior design settings, covering visitors needs for this autumn.”
With a central focus on a cross-continental marriage between value-driven product and premium brands, September’s INDEX DUBAI will welcome more than 400 exhibitors from across the two continents.
The show will come alive with the colors, patterns, and textures that encapsulated The Silk Road when it was its most densely trodden.
A quick look at the show’s branding (above) and hopefully you recognize some of the patterns and designs that are the cultural footprint of the various nations that made The Silk Road what it was. The bottom patterns include classic French lace alongside Spanish patterns, Portuguese tiles, and a Turkish rug. As you move up you spot patterns from the Middle East, from floor tiles to mosaics and an Indian traditional pattern. At the top, you reach South East Asia, with Japanese, Chinese and Indonesians pattern
