Momodesign chooses Abu Dhabi to make UAE debut with plans to open in Dubai
Momodesign, an Italian design group which produces high-end car accessories, such as steering wheels, gear stick knobs and alloys, has chosen Abu Dhabi to open its first store outside of its home market and is looking to expand further within the UAE.
Momo has a close connection to the racing world, especially to F1 and Ferrari, with Momodesign founded in 1881 as its research and development wing.
Up until now, the luxury brand operated solely out of its Milan store, before opening a second branch in The Galleria on Al Maryah Island.
With its strong partnership with Ahmed Seddiqi and Sons, Momodesign is now looking for a new location to open a boutique in Dubai.
The lifestyle brand not only develops carbon fibre car accessories but also uses the material in its range of chairs, pens, helmets and sunglasses.
Everyday objects are reinterpreted and rethought following and the design studio also sells personalised clothing, leather goods, titanium watches, tech cases and bicycles.
