The theme of this year’s Amman Design Week triggered the imagination of five local designers to come up with a modern installation that highlights one of Jordan’s most pressing issues: the scarcity of water.
Alongside four other designers, Ahmad Sabbagh presented an installation titled “Water Table”, consisting of a table made up of materials used in making water tanks that are placed at the top of residential buildings in addition to a screen on top of the table projecting details.
“Our idea is to raise people’s awareness towards the water problem Jordan is facing. We did a projection on water showing a map of the water movement in Jordan based on a timeline starting from the 1950s up to the future. Visitors can therefore compare the changes in water movement across time”
