D.tales is a new retail concept offering objects with a high level of design based in the Scandinavian traditions. At D.tales you will find some of the most interesting “contemporary” Scandinavian brands such as Muuto, Design House Stockholm, &tradition, SagaForm and Sjöö Sandstroöm . In our range of products, there are items designed by well known and revered designers such as Arne Jacobsen, Claeson Koivisto Rune, Form Us With Love, Verner Panton as well as new designers such as Anna Elzer Oscarson, KiBiSi, Lisa Hilland, TAF Architects and Ragnheidur Ösp.
The common thread within D.tales is that all our products offer a history – a story or a thought – that all design we represent has a tale to tell from the designer’s point of view. It could be a shape, a memory from times past, a combination of materials or a solution to a practical problem that the designer has solved through the product. It is these stories that give the objects their values and it is these stories that makes D.tales product range one of the most compelling and sought after collections both from a design perspective and in terms of quality.
Today, D.tales is the beginning of a shop in DIFC, being transformed from what was once a Scandinavian stationery store to a fully-fledged Scandinavian design store. It is also a web shop with a contemporary and well-designed look. In the DIFC shop, you will find inspiration and will also have the chance to meet visiting Scandinavian designers launching their products or just paying a visit to tell their story. The same holds true for the web shop where customers will find a blog filled with ideas, tips and suggestions for those in search of that personal touch to their homes or themselves.
The product range initially will be made up of over 1,000 articles – from furniture, lamps, carpets and pillows to one-off accessories such as vases, tabletop, art, watches and jewelry. Whilst shopping online, customers in the UAE can have their purchases delivered to their home within 24hrs.
The DIFC store and the web shop is the beginning of what will become the Middle Easts prime location for contemporary designer objects both for the home and office as well as for the person. A larger flagship store is also on the cards, scheduled to open in Dubai later this year.
