Global Grad Show 2019
Global Grad Show is one of the world’s leading exhibitions of graduate design work, held annually as part of Dubai Design Week at Dubai Design District. The 2019 edition featured a curated selection of 150 projects from more than 100 universities representing 45 countries addressing social and environmental issues.
Our commission was the construction of a 710 sqm exhibition space spread over two sites, with partitioned areas, electricity, lighting, shelving and display units. This included 410 walls ranging from 2.6 to almost 8 meters high.
While fulfilling the client’s creative vision, we were able to articulate one of the event’s central themes, environmental sustainability. We provided the client with a groundbreaking and eco-friendly solution – SLIK walls,a patented innovation for events and exhibitions set ups created by our partner in Germany. SLIK is based on a light aluminium framework which can be arranged in different combinations and covered with wood panels, fabric, lightboxes etc. It can be used to form display walls and signages or even to produce entire concepts such as pop-up stores and exhibition booths. SLIK was designed with sustainability in mind and all its components are re-usable: it allowed us to use 80% wood on this project compared to a traditional built construction.
Our client was able to exploit the flexibility and creative options SLIK offers using it as the main component of the entire exhibition. The stylish industrial look of SLIK was integrated into the design creating a unique futuristic atmosphere.
