In this video series, we ask a few UAE-based product designers what does product design mean to them, and their favourite materials to work with, among other interesting details. Read the May edition of Commercial Interior Design to discover the must-know product designers in the region, who are setting new benchmarks in the field with their cutting-edge work, while aiming to preserve heritage and indigenous craftsmanship.
Listen to Sergio Mendes, the Dubai-based Portuguese designer, who shares the earliest influences that led him to take up product design as a profession.
