As the winners of the INDEX 2013 “Contemporary Majlis” competition, designers were asked to re-envision what the traditional Majlis could be.

Inspired by footsteps left in the sand, the flow majlis concept came about by the idea of leaving behind your memory for someone else to discover. with sand giving the majlis its fluid structural integrity one has the ability to sit down and shape their own seat to what suits them best. Derived from Bedouin ideology, Flow allows people to sit low to the ground, which reflects humbleness, a strong connection to the land and the absence of a social hierarchy.
