I have started writing a column for AnOther Magazine. Each month I will profile a different upcoming product or furniture designer. My first story has just gone live and is called Taking Shape: Aljoud Lootah’s Glorious Geometric Furniture. (All copy is as submitted.)
Named Young Designer of the Year at the 2013 Arab Woman Awards, Aljoud Lootah recently became the first Emirati designer to have her work acquired by an international gallery when the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne, Australia bought her Oru collection for its permanent collection. Katie Treggiden speaks to the Dubai-based multidisciplinary designer blazing a trail for Middle Eastern design.
