Dubai insiders say the city needs another giant structure. Taking them literally, VisionDivision made a statue based on Al Hakawati - a storyteller, from arabic times. The giant will tell stories through a series of speakers to those who gather in the park. The giant can move its head and arms even though the structure is made of steel. A rubber like material will act as the giant’s skin.
Implications - Contemporary consumers are only attracted to products that contain an element of surprise. Items that feature an unconventional aesthetic are appealing to those who desire designs that push the limits. Companies trying to stay on the cutting edge could focus on coming out with more designs like this.
