Did design in India formally begin with the Eames Report? The short answer is: of course not. What then, is the Indian design aesthetic? What is India’s design language? How does design permeate through and percolate into our habits, rituals, and homes? Can Indian design be separated from its crafts? Who are the pioneers of Indian design? Who will be its torch-bearers? How does technology play a part in Indian design?
