The event opened yesterday and welcomed a number of well-known designers and until the 9th of November, the event will host several workshops, exhibitions, design forum, design market and many more activities set to happen during this year’s edition.

Also joining as partners are Mercedes Benz and the King Abdulaziz Center for World Culture (Ithra), commenting on the partnership was Ithra’s head of programs Abdullah Al-Rashid, who said: “Ithra’s participation in Saudi Design Week as a strategic partner falls under the center’s commitment to support Saudi talent and to showcase creative content across local and global platforms.”

“Saudi Design Week provides visitors with the opportunity to experience the societal benefit of design in an innovative and interactive way. The event, similar to Ithra, additionally supports in contributing toward bolstering the Kingdom’s knowledge-based economy as well as its social and cultural diversification per Vision 2030 vision.” He added.

We can’t wait to see the SDW showcase the artistic and innovative creations of participants, in addition to highlighting the positive impact that creative designs leave on society by helping create happiness.

The Saudi Design Week was first established in 2014, by Oasis Magazine’s founders Basma and Noura Bouzo, with the aim of providing a platform that is much needed for local and regional talents to showcase their creations.
