Four action-packed days at the 6th edition of the India Design ID 2018 came to a close on Sunday 25 February in Delhi, India. The largest design event in India thought up by Ogaan Media, the publishers of Elle DECOR India, and supported by Asian Paints attracted more than 120 Indian and international exhibitors, 30 renown speakers, many architects, designers as well as design-interested visitors from all over India and abroad.The design and home decor week on the NSIC Grounds in Okhla will be the talk of the town within the design scene for a long time. The exhibition halls showcased the latest and most innovative creations and designs in the industry and well-known brand names were represented. Visitors were immersed in the world of interiors and décor from A to Z including furniture, accessories, lighting, installations, and artworks. The upbeat atmosphere at the events was reflected in the displays where a definite trend away from monochromatic designs towards more colorful creations is noticed.The ID symposium was the main stage for architects and designers to present their ideas, concepts, thoughts and more. They sparked creativity and sometimes laughter and a bit of controversy within the audience. Some of the inspiring talks can be re-watched on Elle DÉCOR’s FB page as they were recorded live. Famous architects such as Simon Velez from Columbia spoke about new materials and advocated to use more natural materials in architectural designs, and UK-based Ron Arad, an architect and designer from Israel, shared his ‘after lunch’ experience with the audience.Apart from presentations, ID symposium also opened the floor to interesting panel discussions and interactive sessions. One of the panels on 24 February was on ‘Blurring Boundaries between Art and Design’ led and moderated by Gunjan Gupta. The panel members were Manish Gulati of M:ofa, Roshini Vadehra of Vadehra Art Gallery, Salil Sadanandan, our managing director Kohler India, and Tarun Thakral of Le Meridien.Those who didn’t want to benefit from the ID Satellite pop-up parties and food carts that were omnipresent on the fairgrounds, there was an alternative happening at the Kohler Experience Center. A smashing cocktail party among the products and vignettes concluded a full day of design talks, trends, and things.
