Earlier this week, Savoir Flair reported in its Dubai Design Week guide that Sauce had collaborated with LA-based artist Paige Smith to transform ordinary objects around town in to extraordinary design pieces.

"Setting up my makeshift studio at Sauce HQ. I create these rubber molds by hand to cast my resin pieces."
"Spray-painting each piece separately. Personally, it’s my least favorite part of the process, because it’s so time consuming and difficult."

"My first installation in Dubai – this piece is located in Satwa. I loved the color of the wall as well as the metal detailing on the door."
