In pictures: A look back at designMENA Quiz night
Interior designers and architects in Dubai came together to celebrate the first ever designMENA Quiz night, which took place at Mint Leaf of London, Dubai on May 10.
The quiz, organised by designMENA.com, Commercial Interior Design and Middle East Architect magazines, featured seven rounds, highly focused on design and architecture, as well as general knowledge, music and movie rounds.
The teams were also challenged to take part in a creative round where they were tasked to create a piece of furniture or a furniture concept, using a single block of Plasticine.
The winners of the night were designers from the LXA team (who named themselves Artistic Monkeys), who were named the quiz masters and took home a trophy and prizes provided by Fagerhult. The team won the quiz with a total of 73 points.
With 70.50 points, the second prize went to the Wilson Associates team (AKA Ugly Donkeys), who also took home a trophy.
The creative round was awarded to Draw Link Group for its ‘living room’ concept that was commended for its intricate detailing and overall creativity.
Other participating companies include GAJ, Perkins+Will, Wilson Associates, Woods Bagot, Pallavi Dean Interiors, Bishop Design, Killa Design, Draw Link Group, Kristina Zanic, Aurecon, LXA, Brand Creative, 4 Space Design, Esra Lemmens Agency and Cracknell.
Also joining the teams were event sponsors Fagerhult, Kohler, Interface, Mas Paints, Draw Link Group, Steelcase and OFIS, with Pallavi Dean Interiors joining us as the social media sponsor.
Dubai 92 Radio presenter Catboy hosted the quiz night alongside his partner Lorra.
