Al Majlis at Madinat Jumeirah

Dubai, UAE
June 2018

During the holy month of Ramadan, the Madinat Arena in Dubai was transformed into a dreamy setting straight from the legendary One Thousand and One Nights tale. Twinkling lights, giant chandeliers, reflective mirrors and a huge amount of printed ShowTex fabrics added a classy but festive atmosphere to the imposing space.

Flexible printed mesh

A whopping 3000 square metres of printed Speaker Mesh covered the venue's arches with beautifully designed artwork without compromising the room's acoustics. The flame-retardant fabric is perforated with oval-shaped holes enabling sound and light to pass through. On top of that, the flexible drapes could easily be folded for transport without damaging the high-quality print as they were printed in-house by the dye-sub machine.

Giant printed paintings

All around the arena, 38 printed backdrops were used to decorate the walls as if they were giant paintings. Each piece was printed on Universal 250 BB fabric. The blackout fabric ensured the frame was not visible through the print and no backlighting could interfere with the unique artwork.

High-end interior decoration

The famous Al Majlis at Madinat Jumeirah is designed to impress at every turn. The spectacular venue and gorgeous interiors ooze the warmth and hospitality of Arabian tradition, emphasized even more by the lavish decoration of beautifully printed textiles.
