The works of these young Indian designers are permeated by the culture of their country but are also sensitive to western touches - a balance between tradition and innovation.
Even in design, India reveals itself as a complex country, hard to pin down into a classification and system, whose exhibition offers an overview that compares various social realities: objects based on myths and legends, revived with irony, revamped and innovative traditional items, design projects that meet the real needs of village life, and even processes or semi-finished products aimed at the urbanised, high-technology India of her major cities.
