Mudeem collection is a set of hand-crafted storage boxes inspired by the traditional Mandoos wooden chests, introduced in an innovative way, to celebrate the deep-rooted values of our culture and heritage.
Such tangible and intangible heritage is essential to preserve the past, but it is also essential that they are adapted and highlighted as our society changes. They evolve, to keep pace with a changing world, and also to provide a long-lasting link with our rich history.
Mudeem, which means long-lasting in Arabic, serves to document and draw attention to those aspects of culture that cannot easily be held but must be experienced.
The collection examines new innovations in material manipulation while giving new presence to the traditional Mandoos storage boxes.
Mudeem is inspired by the beautiful past, those memories, and that of the Mandoos. It aspires to keep our heritage inherent in our hearts permanently.
Mudeem Weave consists of a storage box completely enveloped in an intricate camel leather weave finish. The opposing diagonal lines that the weave creates results in a beautiful interplay of light and shadow. The weave pattern is an abstracted inspiration of the UAE’s rich culture which goes to further demonstrate how small-scale design elements can make impressive impacts.
