Floral Installation in the Concept Pavillion
So we are back with the second half to India Design, 2013. Our spirits not dampened by the chilling rains we carried on for the symposium. Pinakin Patel gave an extremely moving video presentation on the master Padmashri Dashrath Patel. Followed by my idol Marcel Wanders. Marcel Wanders synonymous with exuberant creativity. In his Houndstooth Christian Louboutin, Marcel Wanders, was a vision you could not take your eyes off. Finally finishing off with Li Edelkoort. When she speaks you are hanging off each word. Her cheer and brilliance is engulfing. 

Artists Painting

A bull stares down at you as you walk towards the event. My interpretation would be, the pain caused to the animal, bleeding down him in a burst of emotion. Created by an unknown artist. This painting was destroyed by the rains. I wish the event planners had taken more care and protected this piece.

Bio Inc by Sakthivel Ramaswamy

Bio Inc by Sakthivel Ramaswamy conceived a fluid bionic form with spaces that are open and yet feel enclosed. A spatial experience with interplay of light and shadow. The lit up floor, the dynamic form, thousands of hollow tubes, the lightness of the structure all come together to evoke an ethereal experience.  It is designed based on a simple system of weaving paper tubes together. The system allows flexibility to create dynamic forms along with being ecologically friendly.

Mukul Goyal Art Installation

Mukul Goyals medium of artistry has always been metal. Here he uses it to depict the woman struggling to break free from the shackles of her life.

Asian Paints created a special gallery, focusing on current trending colors. As well as forecasting the next seasons hues. Maison & Objet had us see a greater deal of pastels being used. Asian Paints going the same way with its blend of solid pigments with pastels.

Lastly Klove Studio presents Devalaya, The Home of God. Creating an aerial view of what an Indian temple space looks like. What I liked was that they changed the usual pendant light display from the ceiling, to a higher impact visual on a vertical wall. The entrance to the temple from the far right, moving to the main area in the center. Dim Lights give you the subtle glow of many diyas flickering. A stunning collection.
