Renowned Italian porcelain stoneware manufacturer Mirage has launched a new design space at Dubai Design District (d3). Created as a multi-purpose space to provide a platform for the design fraternity to nurture and grow the regional scene, Mirage Project Point Dubai features several individual workspaces as well as meeting areas.

"Mirage Project Point Dubai provides a versatile, multi-functional platform that design professionals can use for meetings, presentations and talks outside of their own offices," said Tanya Pearson, General Manager of Mirage Middle East. "It also provides a useful meeting place for designers that are not based in d3 or in the UAE, where they can come to work, or simply have a coffee and a chat. Our doors will always be open, to help serve the needs of the thriving design community here."

With an eye to showcase the stunning collection by Mirage, all of the designated spaces also feature the brand's signature offerings including the Jewels Suite, the luxury marble-look tile series that bedeck the private meeting room as well as award-winning Transition series that tile the floor.

"From the beginning, we did not want to create a standard tile show room, but rethink the ways in which designers and specifiers interact with tile samples," said Christina Morgan, Director of Interior Design at Pallavi Dean Interiors, the firm behind the décor concept. "The tile displays should not be purely functional, but push the boundaries and show the versatility of the product. Straight away we imagined using the tiles for furniture pieces and art installations – reflecting the spirit of d3."

As part of its opening, Mirage Project Point Dubai will be hosting a series of free public talks as part of Dubai Design Week in October. Also, find out what's in store for the upcoming Design Ras Al Khor.
