AMMAN — A commodious terra cotta chair, edible figurines and candy-shaped stones were among the creations that greeted visitors to Amman Design Week 2019. Taking place for the third time in the Jordanian capital from Oct. 4-12, the fair brought together 250 participants from 13 countries.

This year's theme was “The future is a step away: what are the possibilities?” uniting farmers with designers to offer new perspectives on the future of food. It also included a special "Future City" exhibition that focused on the possibilities of transforming public spaces into secure sites of food production.
