The collaboration centres on the concept of visual landmarks and spatial navigation, with KAMEH drawing inspiration from the idea of an object serving as a navigational landmark or wayfinding token. Through the minimalist forms and signature weathered textures, KAMEH has created a contemporary totem that embodies the shared values of both brands. Yango’s general manager for GCC, Islam Abdul Karim, expressed his admiration for KAMEH’s talented and unique team and the inspiration the collaboration has sparked.
KAMEH’s art and design philosophy is rooted in the belief that technologies, designs, and art are intertwined and inseparable. By partnering with creative talents and firms from diverse fields, KAMEH believes that they can bring about new and more meaningful projects. KAMEH’s work on the Yango pick-up point design is a perfect example of this, as it fuses practical and creative needs into a physical embodiment of Yango’s services.
Both brands share similar values, focusing on quality, clarity, and delivering premium products and experiences. Their collaboration has resulted in a striking design object that is both a work of art and a functional wayfinding tool. The project showcases the power of collaboration between talented, creative individuals and companies from different fields, highlighting how the appreciation of art, design, and luxury can bring about groundbreaking projects that inspire and captivate audiences.

KAMEH is a collectible design brand launched by the Dubai-based creator KAMEH in 2022. All products are handmade in the UAE in collaboration with skilled local artisans. Every product is unique and cannot be exactly replicated. The items are made-to-order and can be purchased through the website to be ready within 3-4 weeks. KAMEH also creates design objects on request.
KAMEH conceals his identity since he believes that art should precede the artist. The designer wants the viewers to enjoy the products, rather than be focused on the face behind. KAMEH is the designer, as well as the brand, the story and the pieces.
KAMEH combines complexity and craftsmanship into original interior home pieces where functionality and art are synonymous. KAMEH is inspired by various elements such as art, nature and human self. His collections contrast the simplicity of beautiful minimal design with the functional chaos of today’s world.
KAMEH won the Identity Design Award 2022 and his works have been covered in leading lifestyle media, including Esquire, Entrepreneur and Identity.
