Khalid Shafar

One of the most recognised Emirati designers, Khalid Shafar has long been working hard to improve the international name of Arab artisans in the global sphere. Most recently, he participated in London Design Festival, working alongside AHEC to create a public installation which is now part of d3. Shafar also unveiled a number of new product ranges in the past 12 months, which illustrate his growth as a creative individual in a highly competitive field. His impactful contribution to the inaugural Dubai Design Week including the ‘Win, Love, Victory’ installation that pays homage to the fallen Emirati soldiers, not only acknowledges his maturity as an Emirati designer, but also reflects him as a design ambassador of sorts, leading the way for other Arab designers to emerge in the global market.
