Ahead of DOWNTOWN DESIGN 2017 fair, Rue Kothari, Fair Director of Downtown Design celebrates its fifth anniversary with a selection of the iconic brands on show.
The 150 brands on show will represent the very best of modern design from 23 countries. 72 brands make their regional debut at Downtown Design and 8 regional brands elevate the Middle East from its positioning as a consumer of quality design to being its’ source.
Fair Director Rue Kothari sets the mood for the November fair with a jewellery box of pioneering brands, presented at AR Gallery, the new home for progressive design at Dubai Design District. 
“This year we celebrate five years of Downtown Design, and so we felt it was important to highlight the originality and craftsmanship behind the success of the brands we represent each year at the fair,” she says. “For Modern Masters, we have worked with each of the exhibiting brands to showcase a unique piece that will not be displayed at this year's fair. The objects best represent each brand's individual craft, skill and aesthetic vision, and together characterise the spirit and value of contemporary commercial design.”
