Tasmeem Fair, a non-profit initiative by the Saudi Art Council, is open to all until Nov. 28 at SAC’s Gold Moor headquarters in the Shatea district.
Under the patronage of Princess Jawaher bint Majid, organizers selected designers who were best able to apply the concept of reflection to their displays. More than 300 participants had applied.
“The council’s main purpose is to promote art in all its forms, and for the first time, interior designers have been selected to be a part of the movement instigated by the council. They’re an integrated part of the art society and I am proud to have them here under one roof,” said Nawaf Nasser, who masterminded Tasmeem.
The fair’s displays are varied and 16 designers have been selected, 11 of whom are women.
“I was surprised and very pleased with the level of unprecedented professionalism of our Saudi interior designers,” said Princess Jawaher bint Majid. “The volume of portfolios we received is proof of their enthusiasm, elevated sense of style, and their level of awareness and intellect. This is a chance for the audience to get to know more about interior design and I’m confident that each season will be better than the previous.”
