Jumeirah Group unveils 101 new buggies in Dubai decorated by Emirati artists

A fleet of new buggies has been revealed by the Jumeirah Group in a joint project with Dubai Culture and Brand Dubai. The buggies have been designed by five artists from the United Arab Emirates and are 100 per cent electric.

Each of the 101 six-seater buggies has been decorated with artwork inspired by the heritage and culture of the United Arab Emirates and created by four female Emirati artists Sheikha Wafa Bint Hasher Al Maktoum, Eman Al Raesi, Sheikha Bin Daher, Hessa Al Awadhi, and the UAE-based artist, Majid Alyousef.

Exclusively designed for the Jumeirah Group and designed by the Danish manufacturer Garia, the buggies will be used to transport guests around Jumeirah’s hotels in Dubai including Madinat Jumeirah, Burj Al Arab Jumeirah and Jumeirah Beach Hotel. The hotels sit on a two-mile long stretch of golden beach, and guests can enjoy being driven around in comfort and style.

Margaret Paul, the General Manager of Madinat Jumeirah stated:

"Forming a partnership with Dubai Culture and Brand Dubai, we have worked with some extremely talented artists to deliver artistic concepts inspired by the traditions of the UAE and Dubai. The result is a unique experience that brings a combination of modern artwork and the heritage of the country to the guests."

The Director of Projects & Events for Dubai Culture and Art Authority, Moza Suwaidan, added that the project was a unique way to showcase the talent of the creative community in the United Arab Emirates, while using public objects as a canvas. Each buggy is made of 1,700 pieces and the construction of the vehicles utilises wind turbines that generates 39 per cent of the power needed to create them.

The Dubai-based Jumeirah Group is one of the world’s most luxurious hotel groups and its operates nine properties in Dubai, including the famous Burj al Arab, Jumeirah Beach Hotel, Jumeirah Emirates Towers, Jumeirah Zabeel Saray, Madinat Jumeirah, World Trade Centre Residence, Jumeirah Mina A’Saram, Jumeirah Al Qasr Hotel, and the new Jumeirah Creekside Hotel.

The company also operates upscale hotels in other destinations including London, Mallorca, Rome, Shanghai, Abu Dhabi, Kuwait, Baku, Bodrum, Frankfurt, Istanbul, and the Maldives.
