Delhi is the hub of everyday exhibitions for décor & lifestyle. We spent our Saturday brunch in the spectacular showcase by Godrej Design Lab (GDL) a platform to give independent Indian designers an opportunity to grow entered its second season in a bigger and a better way. With an overwhelming response from designers GDL received over 900 entries nationwide. Launched last year with a concept to provide budding designers a platform to interact with design industry leaders and manufacturers, GDL severs as an innovative avenue to these aspiring designers working independently.
On the basis of originality, creativity and manufacturability of the product, GDL has short-listed 9 incredible designs this year. These short-listed designers are being mentored by Mr. Navroze Godrej, Executive Director, Strategy & Innovation, Godrej & Boyce & Mr. Hemmant Jha, Chief Design Officer, Godrej & Boyce, from past 3 months to further develop their design, remove technical flaws and create a physical prototype of their idea with the help of GDL.
The designers had applied for participation in categories like furniture, furnishings, lighting, home décor and accessories. This season saw a range of creative products with disruptive innovative concepts, few of them include Crochet Table, Slow Motion Door, Kinder Wagen, Kathfula Chair, Buoy Floating Lamp, Summer light- writing/ working desk etc.
I wish all the best to such brilliant minds & a great thank you to Godrej Design Lab for such efforts to collaborate with them. Oimfashion is looking forward to watch more in this great idea.
Keep loving OIMFashion 🙂
