Head to Dubai mall

Where creativity runs rampant and even the most utilitarian gadget becomes a delightful discovery. With a catchphrase like that, and gadgets like Cat Butt Magnets, Portable BBQ Suitcase Red and Party Picks Ants, it’s no wonder Kikkerland Design has its own dedicated following.

Kikkerland Design have opened its first store in the region, in Dubai Mall. The New York-based brand brings together the work of over 40 industrial designers globally. And the end result is a collection of intricate gadgets that are perfect conversation starters. There something for every space or purpose, whether its tech toys or curio games or just home décor. All reinvented with a touch of Lynchian relish, of course. Add to that the act that they add 150 new pieces to their collection every ix months, and you have a perfect off-the-track shopping destination. 

jcrop-previewBrooklyn-based design studio Form Nation, who boast clients like NASDAQ and Uberliss, have created the 40-square meter Dubai Mall outlet. Needless to add, the focus is on the playful.
