1971 is a multi-functional design space dedicated to the display and discussion of all forms of contemporary design ranging from graphic, furniture to interior, interactive design and new technologies. With a variety of curated exhibitions and public programmes, 1971-Design Space aims to become a regional and international design hub in the U.A.E. working in close proximity with local designers, architects, schools and universities. 1971-Design Space also serves as an informal meeting point and includes a fully serviced cafe for the enjoyment of the public.
1971 Design Space presents Alia Mazrooie with a commission of a contemporary outdoor modern Arabian majlis redesigned with the same function and level. The form of the seating is inspired by the organic form of sand dunes found within UAE’s deserts.
