WET Design, which was established in 1983 AD in Los Angeles, California, designed the dancing Dubai Fountain, it also designed the world’s largest and most famous fountains, as it designed more than 250 fountains in more than 20 countries, in addition to obtaining more than 40 patents for new technology that it has created.

The founder and CEO of the company “Mark Fuller” stated that with the assignment of the task of implementing this fountain, they had some anxiety, although they implemented something similar to it in the city of Bellagio, but in the United Arab Emirates, the city of Dubai with the different culture, it was a challenge for them.

Peter Kopik, who is in charge of the design, stated that when he designs a fountain, he depends on the design style of the place where it is located, and since the UAE is an Arab country, the basic principle is that this music is calm and joyful at the same time, unlike Western culture.

After completing the design, they actually tested the dance on site using robotic technology, which shows the melody in an unusual way.
