The in5, a part of UAE-based Tecom Group, is showcasing the region’s largest 3D printed stand, The North Star, at the Dubai Design Week, which opened its doors on November 7.
Spanning over 1,000 sq ft, The North Star represents the power of the collective intelligence and shared vision that in5 enables in addressing pressing environmental challenges. It had been a major highlight at the event which concludes tomorrow (November 12) at the Dubai Design District (d3).
An infinite loop generating four spaces and organising surfaces make up the pavilion, with the surfaces joining and folding together to create pockets that are continuously connected to signify in5’s legacy as start-up incubator.
Tecom Group has been developing strategic, sector-focused business districts across the emirate of Dubai since 1999. It is well-positioned to continue playing an integral role in cementing Dubai’s status as a global business and talent hub.
The Tecom portfolio consists of 10 business districts catering to six vital knowledge-based economic sectors, including design, education, manufacturing, media, science, and technology.
It provides a varied and tailor-made leasing portfolio – which includes offices, co-working spaces, warehouses, and land – to over 10,800 customers and more than 105,000 professionals.
According to Tecom, Nyxo Visionary Design, which is among the most creative start-ups within in5, has designed and built The North Star from recycled polyethylene terephthalate glycol (PETG) material to showcase how recycling can be incorporated into real-world architecture and promote sustainable design that is globally relevant and adaptable.-TradeArabia News Service
