Among the many festivals and exhibitions that we’ve been having now days, here’s one that’ll appeal to the softer side of people. India Design ID 2016 which is a week-long event that got underway on 05th February, 2016 with some sub-events at the various design districts will dovetail into the Exhibition proper at NSIC Grounds, Okhla on the weekend from 12th to 14th February 2016.
The exhibition aims to display the creativity of both fledgling as well as well-entrenched designers / design labels. The main purpose of the exhibition is to serve the design ecosystem of the country by uplifting the gen-next talent pools and businesses in the sector. What is showcased here is truly a wide canvas of creativity of designers/ labels which includes various aspects like installation, lighting, products, interiors, architecture and conversations.
