The Design Fabric Festival 2018 is to be India’s first multi-discipline design festival from 29 – 31 March 2018 at Famous Studios Mumbai, Mahalaxmi Mumbai. ColourNext 2018 Mumbai is set to launch at DFF 2018. Don’t miss it.
In its inaugural edition the Design Fabric Festival 2018 has an interesting mix of industry leaders and prodigal path breakers. The impressive speaker lineup include The Sartorialist, St+art India, Orijit Sen, Hey Studio, Basrai Brothers, Christoph Niemann, CATK and Alicia Souza to name a few. In addition to this, there will be artist-led workshops such as Kinetic Identity by DIA Studio, Zine Making by Tuesday Bassen & Adam J Kurtz and few more. To round of the festival, there are panel discussions, exhibits, performance art and after parties for networking. DFF’s aim is to elevate the standards of the ever-evolving Indian design scene to one of global reckoning “whilst developing a diverse but close-knit community of students, professionals and enthusiasts from across different disciplines of art and design”. You can find the full schedule at the DFF Facebook Event Page or their Website.
The DFF is supported by Asian Paints and marks the Mumbai launch of Asian Paints’ annual forecast event called ColourNext. ColourNext over 15 years has become a trusted curator and library of future trends in the country with its collaborative research and experimentation along with some of India’s finest minds.
ColourNext’s 2018 edition “interprets our trending aspirational behaviour across the digital, public and personal spaces, recreating them as moods that will soon find themselves in our spaces. Observing the impact of consumer behaviour on colour and décor choices, [it] responds with Passion Flower as the Colour of the Year”. As 2017’s Intense Ocean colour palette gives way to the calm warmth of Amber and soft hues of Mustard in Passion Flower, the soothing colours help rediscover inner peace in safe inspiring spaces, designs and lifestyles.
After its launch at India Design (ID18) Delhi in February 2018, ColourNext 2018 comes to Mumbai and invites you to explore individual spaces with the 4 trends - Humane, Busy Cool, Alchemy of Memories and Untamed. Via these trends CN18 attempts to interpret the aspirations of today’s dynamic individuals that inhabit the fast paced world of change, while armed with technology and the internet, yet yearn for the primal sense of touch and grapple with transient memories.
In doing so, it articulates via mood boards the kind of spaces such individuals would inhabit to rediscover, rewind, renew and recreate. From the plethora of colours, textures, motifs and lighting, it curates markers to ignite the feelings calm, creative, conscious and even chaotic, that help the on-the-go jetsetters of today to find their way.
ColourNext 2018 is open from 29 March 2018 (evening) to 31 March 2018. For the schedule and news on the Design Fabric Festival head to their website.
