CREATE THE ULTIMATE INDIAN OBJECT FOR OUR FUTURE...

Open to all students enrolled at a recognised design school in India, this competition looked for the best new thinking about product design in India. Students have been asked to present a very detailed description of the de­sign and build for an object that could be anything from an everyday, household item to a luxury one­off in one of five categories: furniture, home accessories, home textiles, fashion and fashion accessories. The idea was to bring innovative thinking, techniques and materials to object design, reinterpreting traditional skills to create something with a contemporary, global appeal. An international jury selected projects that not only demonstrate skilful craftsmanship, but an understanding of how to collaborate with other disciplines to produce objects that challenge our preconceptions about traditional craft and making. Products have been assessed in terms of quality and their blending of the best of Indian handicrafts with contemporary techniques and appropriate use of local materials.
