ABOUT DORIAN PAUWELS
Dorian is a passionate entrepreneur in the industry of interiors. He launched ikonhouse as new retail concept in Dubai in 2012 promoting designer furniture (Vitra, Fritz Hansen, Carl Hansen & Son), audio-visual (Bang & Olufsen) as well as home automation technology (Crestron, Lutron). He first built-up his business skills as a Brand Manager at Procter and Gamble for 6 years, then eventually made the leap away from the corporate ladder to found his own company ikonhouse in Dubai with a mission to promote ultimate living experiences through complete interiors solutions. Son of an architect and trained engineer, he has a genuine passion for uncompromised craftsmanship and promotes the finest materials growing patina with use instead of wear-and-tear with lesser quality materials. This philosophy and his wish to share, inspire and educate are at the heart of the monthly ikonhouse’s Design Talk series held at ikonhouse showroom. Finally, he resides in Dubai with his architect wife and family of 3 boys, all three born in Dubai.
