Marras said in a statement: “Dubai is one of the first markets in the entire world at the moment and I’m very proud to be part of it with such an important presence.

"Together with I’M Isola Marras, our first flagship store in the world, I’m excited about the Antonio Marras flagship store opening. The two stores perfectly reflect our atmosphere in the choice of furniture, which were selected piece by piece with deep research in the creation of an extension of the Marras world throughout Sardinia. Moreover opening a restaurant with my name is a dream come true.”
