Design Days Dubai
From 18-21 March, the Design Days Dubai, in its second year, will offer exceptional rare design creations from 29 galleries, a 30% growth in participation over 2012. As well as being the only design fair in the Middle East and South Asia, Design Days Dubai is now the world’s most diverse design fair globally. By featuring galleries from all six continents, the fair has further established Dubai as centre of discovery and as an international meeting place for the world’s cultural community.

The Design Days Dubai are dedicated to collectible and limited edition furniture and design objects, both regional and internationally. As limited-edition design becomes a more popular and safe investment both regionally and internationally, the event will feature never-before-seen contemporary works alongside vintage and classic design pieces from the 20th century.

One of the many pieces on view is A 3,44 metre long kinetic clock installation based on almost 300 interconnected analogue clocks, each synchronized to drive the minute and hour-hand independently to create beautifully choreographed movements to enthral visitors at the Design Days Dubai 2013. The installation will be presented by the renowned Belgian design-art traders and curators, Victor Hunt Designart Dealer.

During the past few years, Humans since 1982’s explorations into design, technology and their interface have led to the creation of outstanding objects that are already considered classics. Check out their other videos.
