The first materials library of its kind in the world is all set to open in Dubai this year.
The pioneer project will be the first in the world accessible to both design related industries and the public. D-Town Library will have capacity to display thousands of materials — becoming the largest archive in the globe.
Following the vision of HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, of making Dubai the capital of knowledge and innovation, D-Town Library — created by the group D-Town Enterprises — aims to be a
center of information and interchange of know-how for all
design disciplines.
Whether one is an architect looking for varieties of wood for a project, a fashion designer searching for the latest trends in smart fabrics, or someone scouting for ideas to build a boat, they can find solutions at D-Town Library.
“The concept of D-Town Library has been put together after seeing the void in the global market — connectivity as the heart of knowledge and trade. The concept will connect and bridge the gap between the world’s industries and the
consumers,” said Rowdha Ali Mohammed AlSakit, CEO of D-Town Enterprises.
“People need to know what is available and how to use it in order to simply start creating, enrich innovation and come up with something new. For all that to happen people need tools, and the library will be an essential tool,” pointed out AlSakit.
The space, set to open by the end of the year, and it will have capacity to display thousands of materials’ samples catering to all types of innovative and creative minds.
The rich list goes from the ranges of clear glass, to the most innovative technology-related materials that can be used across various creative industries in this region such as
fashion, designing and even in the automotive industry.
In addition, visitors who want to take an in-depth look at the collection can consult the expert engineers at the library to enquire about the composition of the materials, usages and manufacturing details.
Currently, D-Town Library is on the process of selecting materials and has already signed MOAs with some of the most prestigious brands in the world and tied up with premium global partners from New York, Paris and Tokyo.
Entities involved in the project will be hosting active educational workshops explaining on how to integrate innovative materials on a project to add to its beauty.
“We want D-Town Library to become the space where the creative community meets knowledge and innovation. This will be the meeting point to likeminded people, a center of knowledge where innovators and creatives can exchange ideas and bring their projects to life”, stated AlSakit.
