Our week at Design Days Dubai

Last week Capsule Arts participated in Design Days Dubai presenting Giles Miller Studio as part of the installations segment of the fair. It was a great week working to put together the twin light installations Castor and Pollux that took over 20 hours to install onsite, and countless hours in preparation for the Giles Miller team before arriving in Dubai from the UK. The week also included a talk title 'The Role and Value of Bespoke in Interior Design', chaired by Rachael Brown of Capsule Arts and included Giles Miller, Andy Martin who was exhibiting with the Crafts Council, and Dubai based Interior Designer Pallavi Dean.

Here's a few pictures from the week and you can view more on our instagram page. Thank you to everyone that posted their own photos and videos, many of which we reposted.
