About: Design X Design Exhibition : 20under35
The exhibition component of Design X Design involves showcasing the work of Delhi based designers to facilitate the reading of prevailing trends across various design based creative industries. Never easy to comprehend, the design story of a culture at any given moment, is perhaps best understood by looking at young design practices. Therefore, Design X Design Exhibition: 20under35 by sharing the philosophies, working methods and future aspirations of the twenty shortlisted designers under the age of thirty five aims to raise levels of appreciation, foster cross connections and inform the journeys ahead.
I want to sincerely thank Mr.Iftikhar-mulk Chishti , Convenor, Design X Design for having given me the opportunity to showcase my products at the exhibition. It was a wonderful experience meeting a bunch of talented designers and sharing the platform with them.
