The ‘India Pavilion’ is all set to showcase at the London Design Festival 2013 with a small, rich talent base of grassroots innovators, furniture designers and fine artists…
Where design and design sensibilities were once location specific, openness to innovation, irrespective of cultural, religious and geographic boundaries, has drawn the vast realm of design into a focused, accessible space. Designers from various parts of the world are striving to propagate their designs across borders.
In such a scenario of growth, India’s digital magazine on Lifestyle, Art & Design – Indiaartndesign.com from Mumbai, India, is proud to announce its association with Designersblock, an established exhibitor at London Design Festival 2013 to co-host a pavilion for artists and designers from India.
Drawing from our cultural roots and methodologies, the National Innovation Foundation – India, makes an international presence with Mitticool earthenware – refrigerator and pans by Mansukhbhai Prajapati, a traditional clay craftsman from Rajkot, and Champaran-based Mohammad Rozadeen’s pressure cooker coffee-maker, which is based on the simple principle of harnessing steam from the pressure cooker.
A group of fine artists from Pradarshak, the smallest known gallery of contemporary art in India, make their debut amid the large international turnout, showcasing a few of their choice paintings.

Complementing this scenario are a few furniture designers, whose strength is ‘seating solutions’ with each one distinct from the other.
This group of 12 participants bring with them the ethos of the exemplar Indian spirit of standing up to the world with their ubiquitous creative streak.
Being hosted at the renowned Southbank Centre from Sept.18 to Sept.22, 2013 as part of the London Design Festival 2013, theexhibition is only the first attempt of India Art n Design ezine towards showcasing upcoming Indian designers in the international arena. The promoters aim to foster such endeavours spreading the essence of Indian Art & Design.
