India Design Forum (IDF), is India’s most prestigious design platform that has promoted the Growth of Design Thinking in India since 2012. It is an inclusive design conference for dialogue, debate, consensus and action about everything that design can change or enhance in India.
This year, IDF as a part of the larger ‘MAKE IN INDIA’ WEEK to be held in Mumbai, will showcase the potential of design, innovation and sustainability across various sectors. IDF is being held as a one-day conference on ‘Empowering through Design’ on 17th February ‘16 at the MMRDA Grounds, BKC. The inaugural address of IDF will be delivered by Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev -www.isha.sadhguru.org, about ‘Design Life’ and presentation on the architecture of the sacred spaces of the Isha Foundation.
It is IDF’s dream to create more global design thinkers from India.
