Doha Festival City Set to wow Visitors with Unique Sculpture Installations

Seven bespoke designs by sculptor David Harber to be installed at Doha Festival City

Doha, 9 March 2017:  Doha Festival City, Qatar’s largest entertainment, retail and dining destination continues to deliver on the commitment to bring visitors a world class shopping experience, and surprise and delight customers with the installation it’s first art piece. Created by visionary artist and sculptor, David Harber, the bespoke ‘Sculpted Torus’, is now pride of place in the Mall’s Centre Court. The impressive sculpture, four metres in diameter, will wow guests visiting the Mall when it opens on 5th April 2017. 

The piece is an adaptation of David Harber Ltd’s iconic ‘Torus’ and is part of a series of five variations that will be installed at Doha Festival City. The unique Sculpted Torus is made from mirror-polished, marine grade stainless steel and will sit alongside a succession of smaller, 2m Torus’ – all of which will be slight variations of the original design.

Trevor Hill, General Manager, Doha Festival City, said, “We are delighted to have collaborated with a renowned artist like David, and truly excited to be bringing his art to Qatar for the first time – showcasing his brilliant talent. Doha Festival City is more than just a shopping destination, it is a place where visitors will be able to take advantage of a huge variety of entertainment, retail and dining, in addition to  premium design art concepts which are big, bold and have the wow factor, just like our Mall.”

David Harber is also producing a 4m bronze ‘Keystone Ring’ with a Verdigris finish to be located outside one of the main entrances to Doha Festival City Mall, and is currently designing some hanging ‘tree canopies’ to be placed in the two glass atria of the North Food Court. 

As with all David Harber sculptures, each of the bespoke Torus commissions for Doha Festival City will be designed and handcrafted in his Oxfordshire workshop, in England. By April 2017, all of the pieces will have made the journey from the British countryside to Qatar. David Harber Ltd is renowned for its overseas work, and in 2016, was honoured with The Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade. 

The installation of the sculptures forms part of the finishing touches to the Mall, as Doha Festival City prepares to open next month. With over 500 local and international brands and more than 100 places to dine and relax, there will be an unparralled choice of indoor and outdoor entertainment attractions unique to the country. Easily accessible following the completion of the dedicated ramps from Shamal Road  Doha Festival City is perfectly situated for the ultimate day out.
