'i want my ideas to become popular and seen everywhere in the world so i visited different companies with my projects. finally al-mehbaj company a nuts and coffee firm bought my creative ideas for light fixtures. i am delighted because they have used my 'nutty lights' design units that i personally developed in all their shops and branches" she said.

al-massri said there should be more exhibitions held so that students can hone their skills because 'there is rich potential in interior design in our country."

aya owaimer another student sold her baby crib that doubles as a rocking chair to ashraf al-asoori. owaimer's dual function chair was created in mauve with butterfly motifs.

the maiden exhibition was inaugurated by nada al-nafa vice rector for the college for architecture and digital design (cadd) at the university. ayman al-musharaf dean of cadd also attended the event.

farheen noor khan an instructor in furniture and creative design said the course would produce many successful professionals.

'it was challenging to produce functional and aesthetically pleasing design pieces that had to meet certain standards and human dimensions and match structural stability at the same time. students enjoyed the process and development of their basic ideas into something that was manufactured and became real" khan told arab news.
