On winning The Middle East Emergent Designer Prize in 2016 Orouk said, “I am so thankful and honoured that my work was selected for this year’s Middle East Emergent Designer Prize. Many factors helped me win; however, I believe that the relationship between form and function that I implemented was a key aspect. The ability to translate the conceptual idea into a tangible product was also very essential”.

Orouk’s Work at Dubai Design Week 2017

Glow is a chandelier inspired by the effervescence of jellyfish. It challenges common production methods by combining traditional glass-blowing with the advanced digital fabrication techniques of 3D printing. Glow can be used as either a ceiling chandelier or a floor lamp, combining traditional glassblowing and 3D printing production methods. Spheres made of 3D printed glass are fused using curved acrylic rods that mimic the form of jellyfish legs. Once lit, the transmission of light throughout the piece emphasizes the radiance emitted from a bloom of jellyfish
