2015 – Dubai, UAE
As Khalid Shafar’s design approach for 2015 evolves around the five senses – moving beyond a piece of furniture or just an object. Here he explored the sense of taste in collaboration with the talented Emirati Culinary Fanatic Bader Najeeb ‘Chef B’. He presented a culinary art experience and installation for his 2015 collection launch.
Guided by Khalid’s signature pattern and its colors palette inspired by the seven sands of the Emirates, Bader was missioned to search the country’s various Emirates looking for food ingredients, signature dishes or stories that could be explore in new recipes. These were present to guests at the launch of the new KHALID SHAFAR collection as food bites. Each bite reflected its represented Emirates color according to the pattern, without using any food coloring. The result was a culinary feast of tastes of the Emirates.
