Design International open doors at Dubai Design District
Well known for anticipating market shifts and integrating them into highly creative architectural concepts, Design International is set to open the latest addition to its office network at Building 4 of d3 in the presence of dignitaries and the trendy community of the Dubai Design District attending the 2018 edition of the Italian Design Day on 6th March.
Speaking ahead of the office opening, Davide Padoa, said: “We are delighted to open our new office in Dubai. This is testament to our long-standing connection with the region and reflects our admiration for the way the city of Dubai has chosen to embrace the architecture and design industries. We look forward to working in the Dubai Design District with its stimulating vibe that reflects innovation in a space that educates, entertains and supports creativity.”

Design International’s philosophy is rooted in the belief that every design has its own individual story created with the aim to trigger a unique experience for guests in different environments – be it retail, hospitality, commercial, residential or recreational leisure projects.
Recent examples of Design International’s work include Il Centro in Arese, which skilfully integrates the use of interior and external space through its city street concept; and the Lulu Group’s Mall in Silicon Oasis Dubai, which creates a sustainable, dynamic sanctuary where people can meet and share a wealth of different experiences.
Both centres embody the firm’s philosophy of shaping stories to create transformative experiences. Design International is in Office 103A of Building 4, d3.
