Exclusive Furniture Design Collection by Aljoud Lootah

Entitled ‘Al Areesh’ (referencing the Arabic name of the structure), the exclusive furniture design collection comprises a set of furniture and lighting pieces including a room divider, a coffee table, a stool, and table lamp.

 

Areesh constructions are typically created from dried palm fronds, placed vertically as poles, and linked together by rope to create simple enclosures that provide shade from the sun, and protect against prevailing winds.

Such structures were commonly used across the UAE as summer houses and ‘majlises’ (places of gathering), where the gaps in the walls allowed for ventilation for the inhabitants.

Lootah used contemporary materials such as rose gold, glass, and copper plating to reinterpret the traditional architectural language of the structures while encapsulating their nature.

The collection was first debuted during Dubai Design Week, which took place from 13-18 November 2017.

Much like these traditional structures, the pieces in the collection incorporate vertical lines that have a way of playing with the surrounding light as it passes through the openings and bounces off the surfaces.
