Combining the know-how of four historic French manufacturers with the creativity of four artists residing in the United Arab Emirates, “Co-Lab” was a true collaborative project, a skills workshop whose results were exhibited from December 21, 2017 to March 25, 2018 at the Louvre Abu Dhabi Museum.

Zeinab Alhashemi and the Verrerie de Saint-Just / Saint-Gobain; Vikram Divecha and MTX – Architectural Embroidery; Talin Hazbar and Sèvres – Manufacture and National Museums as well as Khalid Shafar and the Manufactures des created the four original works Gobelins, de Beauvais and de la Savonnerie.
