Al Zain Stand was designed by ‘Inspiration Interior Design”, for Jewelry Arabia of 2009.
The concept of the project was to showcase the glory of Zain company for almost a century. Silver and glass were used as the main materials and a professional lighting design was put in place to celebrate this glory.
From the humble beginnings of a pearl merchant to a multinational brand, Al Zain has come a long way. The family’s forefather, the late Hassan Al Zain, began the business as a trader of pearls back in 1930. During the days when Bahrain’s trade scene relied mostly on farming, fishing and pearl diving, he was regarded as a pioneering entrepreneur of his time.
His son, the late Abdulla Al Zain, who soon joined the business, became an essential asset to his father’s business. He expanded Al Zain’s geographic footprint by being one of the first to combine pearl and jewelry making in the Gulf. He had an inherent passion for pearls, an eye for beauty as well as a progressive mind for business. He began incorporating the watch business into his jewelry trade and travelling to Italy and Switzerland in pursuit of the highest quality of products. In the early 1950’s, he opened his first flagship store outside Bahrain in Saudi Arabia. This marked a true triumph for the company and the first of the several other shops that would later be launched in the region.
The stand items designed by Inspiration Interior Design were designed and manufactured based on a modulation system, in a way that they could be easily dismantled and put back together for the next exhibition in another country. A special packing system was also designed by the designer.
The prestigious and elegant stand was well representative of the company’s glorious history. During the inauguration, the booth was visited by his Excellency HRH Prince Khalifa Bin Salman Al Khalifa where he was received by the owner of Al Zain Company, Nabeel AlZain and the designer Parastoo Jafari from Inspiration Interior Design.
