HERITAGE REDESIGNED

by Ayah Al Bitar

The Dubai based furniture and product designer, Ayah Al Bitar, has created a niche for herself in the region,s ever growing spectrum of design. Through her work, she merges tradition and modernity, creating products that evoke a deep sense of the Arab world, from its rituals to its traditions. Raised in Saudi Arabia and educated at Parsons in New York, Al Bitar is motivated by the use of design as a tool for social change and the breaking down of cultural boundaries. Her most recent collection, the 'Sanctuary', a series of portable storage structures made out of different metals like brass and copper as well as various types of wood, draws inspiration from the Muslim ritual of prayer but can be used for a number of spiritual routines.
