Dia BataI is an Arab spatial designer based in London. The work she does is often context specific and enables audience and user to physically engage with it. The collection ‘’Translations’’ is a result of her interest in creating work that responds to her cultural identity in content and aesthetics. It is the outcome of an admiration of Arabic calligraphy and the traditional art of working with text. She uses an Arabic ‘type’ that she developed to create an object and tell its story, while looking at the possible transformations of the text, in relation to its meaning, the space it occupies, and function of that object itself. Pieces from this collection and other design work have been on display in art galleries in Beirut, Manama, Amman, Paris, Liverpool and London's Mica Gallery and 100% DESIGN.
