The name
Vindemia in old Latin language means the vintage season when the grapes are harvested to make wine giving birth to vintage. Vintage describes age, but age alone hardly begins to explain the collection at Vindemia.

Vindemia is the brainchild of Ghada Kunash hailing from Jordan who has lived in Dubai, UAE for the last 14 years. Being an architect and an avid art collector, she travels across the globe to fashion this intimate art gallery and boutique to bring individuality and character to the UAE’s art retail landscape.

The experience
Vindemia antique gallery offers a wide selection of furniture, silverware, porcelain, glass, jewelry, chandeliers, mechanical music instruments, prints and manuscripts, from 18th, 19th, and 20th century. One cannot miss the varied collection of Hollywood memorabilia, radios, gramophones, and juke boxes available too. Whether one selects one piece that they simply cannot part with and decide to take home, or simply decide to breeze through the spaces in the gallery to some other destination in Dubai, Vindemia believes that visitors will be overwhelmed by the experience that it’s the same magic that will bring them back there again some other day.

Contributing to the ceaseless efforts of the UAE in supporting the artistic and cultural scene in the Middle East, takes the challenge of promoting young regional and international artists with promising talents.
Coming from different nationalities and hence different backgrounds, creates a space for these artists to deliver their messages to
art lovers and young collectors as well as art conoisseurs., through organizing regular exhibitions at its location in JBR - Murjan 5 - plaza level.

“Talking Design and Art...@ FANN-A'-PORTER

Designers and artists alike want their creative work to speak, to enlighten and to heighten senses. They want their masterpieces to speak not only of the past and the present but also of the future- the future, with all its promise, the speed at which it hits us, and the technology that dominates its fabric. The future that we want democratized, collective, and social with a big banner of “beauty, peace and happiness: written on its gates (Mr. Gates: “no pun intended” ).

Beauty is the primordial energy that enchants us to face the all very diverse stages of our being. If the search for happiness is the underlying quest of our lives, then it seems only natural that it should simultaneously be the single most essential theme to which beauty alludes!

As individuals, we may find vanity no less attractive than graciousness, we may also find aggression as intriguing as respect and after all; it wouldn’t surprise therefore, that as humans, we are as conflicted about our visual tastes as we are about our ethical choices- there are indeed many styles of beauty as there are visions of happiness.

To call a work of design beautiful is to recognize it as a rendered metaphor of the values we assume critical to our well being, sometimes even a metamorphosis of our individual ideals in the form of a material medium. What we call beautiful not only evokes aspects of happiness, but also communicates our most deeply rooted sentiments and profoundly held ideas. In fact, we tend to arrange design forms around us that are more capable of communicating what we need within, than we are!

Colors (“literally the colors”), shapes, and compositions sometimes represent unique corridors within ourselves that help us comprehend what we cannot understand on our own, and sometimes even encourage us to reason with what we don’t want to understand- essential genuine or acquired qualities that can shed light on our yesterday and inevitably be part of our lives today, and tomorrow.
