Shaikha Al Sulaiti, Senior Manager of Interior Design at Msheireb Properties, expressed her delight at the exceptional showcase. She said that through these meticulously crafted miniatures, visitors will have a rare chance to delve into the world of design and gain valuable insights into the intricate processes of industrial production.

It’s a unique opportunity to witness the evolution of design, from concept to creation.

Al Mana Maples General Manager Emad Al Shoubaki, meanwhile, provided in-depth insights into the craftsmanship behind each miniature masterpiece and attendees to the grand opening were also introduced to the essence of the Doha Design District itself, highlighting its significance as a creative hub.

Al Sulaiti said that design districts are more than just geographical locations; they are vibrant communities that serve as focal points for creative expression, cultural identity and collaboration.

The Doha Design District offers a diverse range of facilities and amenities, including studios, galleries, boutiques, and creative workshops, with plans to unveil a makers’ space for creatives in the near future.

In line with the focus of the exhibition on industrial production, Al Sulaiti also unveiled plans for a new materials library opening early next year. A materials library is a curated collection of physical and digital resources that designers use for reference and inspiration when working on projects.

Al Sulaiti explained that the materials library will be a collection of unique, artisanal materials, with planned masterclasses offered by brands supplying material on an ongoing basis. It will cater to the growing demand for unique materials and diverse design needs in Qatar and the region, providing designers with the necessary resources to make informed choices.
