Principal & founder, Apical Reform
The ‘My Dubai’ sign at Dubai Design District is one of the city’s most photographed landmarks. Apical Reform, the multidisciplinary collaborative design studio that created it, was co-founded by Amrish Patel. Moving from architecture to collectible furniture and bespoke design-art pieces, Amrish recently opened AR Gallery + Studio at d3 and has quickly impressed the city’s design fraternity with his unique creative experiments. At Dubai Design Week this year, Apical Reform collaborated with MB&F M.A.D. Gallery to create Tornado and Stingray, two limited edition works of kinetic art. Currently working on projects for The Dubai Mall, Burj Khalifa, Armani Hotel and Mandarin Oriental Hotel, Amrish has also co-founded AR. Gallery + Studio
HIS STYLE: Apical Reform works within the remit of science and art, artisanship and inventiveness, thought and making.
