The Side Up

Joy Mardini Design Gallery presents its annual group show, This Side Up. Thirteen designers were invited to devise thirteen boxes of various functions and reinterpret their conventional aesthetics. Each object reflects the designer’s unique narrative drawing inspiration from various motifs that were in turn derived from their personal backgrounds. Embedded with a myriad of references, from symbolic and conceptual,to the history of design and craft, each piece highlights the designer’s particular aesthetic sensibility.

The show presents the outcome of their individual inquiries and step outside the established notions of what the archetypal box usually entails.
