What is common for all designs is the exploration of new identity that has both cultural elements  and inspiration from the Middle East combined with modernity and contemporary forms. Designers aim is to bridge the gap between Western and Arab identities. It is refreshing to see how traditional Arabic motifs and geometrical patterns have been applied to different products in modern ways.

Middle East is extremely rapidly evolving continent, and following how design can be used as a part of emerging identity can give great insight into the markets.
