The UAE’s design market will reach $36bn in 2019 as architects and interior designers leverage advances in the industry, experts said.

Boosted by innovative architecture and interior design projects, the UAE’s design market will grow by 13% from $32bn in 2017 to reach a record-high of $36bn by 2019, according to the Dubai Design and Fashion Council.

The Middle East and North Africa’s design market will grow by 15% to $148bn in 2019, with interior design growing seven times faster than the global average.

Supporting Middle East construction and design innovation, the Hunter Douglas felt linear ceiling system HeartFelt, is seeing strong demand in the region, and will be showcased at this year’s The Big 5 exhibition.

After its regional launch earlier this year, HeartFelt is now expanding its colors tones to black and white, plus five new earth tones -- cream, light brown, medium brown, dark brown, and umber.

“At The Big 5 Dubai, designers can experience how felt can provide safe, comfortable, and cost-effective experiences, from sports stadiums to office towers and metro stations.”
