Arabic calligraphy shines in Museum of the Future's online store

August 31, 2022

The Museum of the Future in Dubai, UAE features on its online store memorabilia inspired by the museum's design meant to imprint on visitors the museum experience. The new store, which comprises six collections, also shows what to expect from the exhibits, with products designed to reflect the spirit of the museum and its values.

Among the products are creations by Emirati talents, as well as, national small and medium companies, including clothes made from recycled materials, souvenirs, and futuristic educational games.

Locally inspired products include those from the Calligraphy collection. They are intricately decorated in Arabic calligraphy (the cursive script also known as thuluth is the same one wrapped around the building) inspired by quotes from His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, which embodies the spirit of the museum and its mission.

Taking home the museum experience

The store provides visitors with the opportunity to find souvenirs with which to relive their experience of the museum. Among the collections are souvenirs related to the unique design of the museum and its character, depicting elements such as the building's recognisable stainless-steel façade. These include travel mugs, bookmarks, notepads, and pens among others.

The museum's elaborate Arabic calligraphy and the building's use of 3D printing technology in the construction process are among the features that have inspired gifts for the store. Exhibits including OSS Hope, the Heal Institute and Al Waha have inspired some of the souvenirs.

Products within the OSS Hope collection include keychains that feature the museum's depiction of humanity's home in space and the potential for future space travel. The Heal Institute collection comprises prints impressed on tote bags, coin purses, pouches, and scarfs.

There are also A3 prints of the digital recreation of flora, replicating the museum's digital rainforest. Reflecting Al Waha's earthy tones, the collection includes cream-colored tea and coffee sets. Among the souvenirs are gifts related to the Future Heroes exhibit, dedicated for children ages 3 to 10. Lastly, a number of products are inspired by the museum's Tomorrow Today exhibit, relating to areas such as health, education, smart cities, energy, and transportation.
