Paul BishopBishop Design

Paul Bishop

Paul Bishop is the founder of the two companies Bishop Design and Rogue. Both are headquartered in Dubai. He is a multi-award winning designer and an icon in the world of interior design. In 1996, he seized the opportunity to move from England to Dubai, which was in the process of growing out of the desert. On the one hand a bold move, but also an opportunity for an aspiring designer to make an internationally recognised name for himself in this growing and promising metropolis. His success proves that he had made the right decision.

We welcomed him at our office in Dubai and were talking about design trends and innovation.
