Amman’s first Design Week, which took place across three major locations in the Jordanian capital, was a celebration of the city’s blossoming arts and design scene.

More than 100 exhibitors took part in this month’s show, including renowned artists and architects from across the Arab world. Organisers explored the links between contemporary and traditional Jordanian crafts, while revitalising disused spaces as creative hubs. Ordinary people who create art in their spare time were exhibited alongside international designers.

Design Week was a festival of juxtapositions, with different disciplines, backgrounds and styles joining together to create new possibilities in a place where design is still finding its feet.
