SAIF FAISAL design workshop is an interdisciplinary Industrial design studio.
Driven by the curiosity and desire to address the poetic and physical necessities, the studio was started in 2014 working across Industrial design, Furniture, Lighting, Craft, Urban Farming (Aquaponics), Architecture & Interiors, Brand Identity, Design Development, Creative Direction, Motorcycle design, Automotive racing & Jewelry Design.
With ‘hands-on’ approach, design to us is the synthesis of craft & technology, natural & high-tech.
Our solutions aspire to simplicity, substance, timelessness and beauty; poetic expression is as significant as the functional attributes.
The work celebrates natural materials with values of frugality that are deep routed in Oriental culture. We believe in a humanity centric design that is sensible and sensitive to the creatures and the environment we live in.
For us design is continuity in human culture and civilization.
Inspiration comes in varied forms - a social concern, a beautiful material, an inspiring craft, a practical need, a curiosity...
The studio has collaborated on projects across Denmark, U.S, U.K, Taiwan, China, Dubai, Bangladesh, India and now Mozambique in East Africa.
Over time we have developed a very strong network of artisans and manufacturers for design development and production. We have an understanding and appreciation for processes, technology and material sciences.
With our ‘ESSENTIALIST’ approach we focus on sensitive, thoughtful and meaningful design. The products we design aspire to poetic expression, with sustainable aesthetics and longevity.
