Saudi Design Week 2015

 

Rukun takes part in the second Saudi Design Week at AlFaisaliah Resort.

With the aim of encouraging designers to look at their identities as inspiration for their work, Rukun looked back at the identity of Saudi design throughout its history. We found that other than influences from 18th century European furniture found in many of today’s Saudi homes, little has changed in the traditional Saudi Majlis.

What we proposed is to take a closer look at the Majlis and try and find a modern way to repurpose it. By using concrete we suggest a modernized version of the Majlis which can be used in gardens and public parks to give a more authentic sense to the region rather than the standardized bench found all over the world.
