Sneha Divias: how I see the interior design industry evolving over the next ten years
3D printing is opening a world of possibilities and it will take custom interiors to a whole new level, leaving plenty of room for experimentation and creativity along the way. Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum inaugurated the world's first 3D printed office in 2016, which is a milestone combining technology and construction. Just like any creative process, 3D printing begins in the mind of a designer with cutting edge technology bringing the designer’s vision into a solid object/built environment by adding material layer by layer, allowing us to control more complex shapes.
Dubai is creating a design economy that’s driven by a rapid expansion of start-ups and entrepreneurs. With entities such as Dubai Design District, Dubai Design and Fashion Council and Tejar being set up as a platform to encourage creative business, there are constant opportunities waiting to be tapped into that will help emphasize and promote a creative boom.
