For the fifth time
The 21,39 Jeddah Arts is back celebrating the best of the creative space, and for the fifth time they’ve partnered with a dazzling jewellery Maison, Van Cleef & Arpels.
Organised by the Saudi Art Council, the annual event shines a spotlight on arts, exhibitions, educational forums, design and expert craftsmanship. This year’s event under the theme of “I Love You, Urgently” focuses on the environmental concerns and places the youth at the core of this exhibition.
During the event, Van Cleef & Arpels will welcome submissions for 2020 Middle East Emergent Designer Prize. Applicants have to present designs for a functional products that explore the theme of Flora – part of the brands history.
The prize offers a unique opportunity for designers to show their work to a global audience with manufacturing and production support from the two partners. The prize is judged by Van Cleef & Arpels, Tashkeel, Hani Asfour – Dean of the Dubai Institute of Design and Innovation (DiDi), and an established professional designer from the region.
Last year a Jordanian-British designer Julia Ibbini impressed with her sculptural vessels ‘Symbio Vessels’, which will be on display during the fair. Additionally, you can view work by Arthur Hoffner, who has artistically created an installation suffused with balance and suspended motion, echoing the Perlée collection from the Maison. Arthur’s creations is displayed at the newly opened Van Cleef & Arpels boutique at El Khayyat Centre, Jeddah, until February 8.
