The second edition of D/code witnessed a collaboration with Design Pataki on an exciting new concept called #ThePatakiEdit. Curated by Esha Gupta, this was a space showcasing a varied mix of emerging and established brands, with a keen focus on current trends. Here at Design Pataki, our focus has been to fill the void and streamline the conversation around design in India, and one of the ways we achieve that is by putting a spotlight on independent design. The brands selected to showcase at The Pataki Edit represented a different ideology with their unique creations. Set to be an exploration of emerging design in India, The Pataki Edit featured brands from across the creative spectrum, with products ranging from sleek handcrafted wooden basins by Solli Concepts to wall art in the form of surrealist photo art by Priyanka Shah. The space was designed by Design Pataki keeping the aesthetics of each brand in mind and creating a synergy to compliment each brand or designer showcased. Bringing these diverse brands under one space sparked intrigue and created a compelling conversation between different spheres of design.
