SHOWING IN KUWAIT: “East Meets West”

bokja

Following it successful debut at last year’s Design Miami event, East Meets West — an exhibition by Kuwait’s Al Sabah Art & Design — is finally home and on display in Kuwait City.

The show is a curated affair by Dutch designer Pieke Bergmans who traveled throughout the Middle East to collect local furniture which were then given a bespoke make-over.

The results — as evidenced by the sofa above — are colorful and innovative, yet still authentic and vaguely Arabian.
