Gestalten's Arabesque book investigates the creative potential of the Arab World and Iran and features examples of recent innovative and groundbreaking design work that is inspired by the richness of the region's visual culture. Our video podcast includes an interview with Ben Wittner and Sascha Thoma from eps51, the editors of Arabesque (together with Nicolas Bourquin) and footage that they filmed while living in Cairo for one year.
