Dubai International Airport, United Arab Emirates

Situated in the Al Garhoud district, Dubai International Airport is the country’s primary airport and the world’s busiest by international passenger traffic. Located over 7,200 acres, the airport contains three terminals, three concourses, two cargo mega terminals and an expo centre with three exhibiting halls.

As part of an expansion project to extend the airport with a third terminal, Brintons has supplied bespoke carpet for the luxurious Emirates First Class Duty Free Lounge.

Working together over six months, the airport chose a design from Brintons’ Skulduggery HD Weave Collection to capture the simplicity and elegance of the airport’s interiors through a modernistic combination of geometric yet sophisticated patterns.

Inspired by music, the Skulduggery collection transforms graffiti, rap and heavy metal into an urban, manmade theme through a spectrum of shades. Brintons’ latest HD Weave Technology allows up to 32 different shades to be weaved into one design, creating truly breathtaking photo-realistic results.

To perfectly encompass the modern and sleek interior style of the airport’s newest terminal, the bold Skulduggery design was created using a palette of soft greys and browns to mirror the matching surrounding marble interiors of the Duty Free Lounge.
