In April 2017, we were part of the mega exhibition Salone Satellite: 20 years of New Creativity at Milan, Italy. The exhibition celebrated 20 years of the young designer’s section of the Salone del Mobile – the Salone Satellite. 500 products curated by the Italian architect Beppe Finessi were exhibited at the Fabbrica del Vapore space during Milan Design Week.

Our product, Kvikk, was displayed in the category ‘Typological Innovation’ alongside work by Marc Newson, Nendo, Matali Crasset, Scholten & Baijings, Satyendra Pakhale and a long list of Satellite alumni.

A very welcome email in November last year announced our selection for the Salone Satellite 2014, a part of the Salone Del Mobile in Milan. The Satellite is now in its 17th year and brings together global designers and studios under the age of 35 to present their ideas and prototypes to the world’s best furniture manufacturers and brands, the visiting trade and of course consumers and the general public. So from April 08 to 13, we shall be at Hall 13/15 of the Milan Furniture Fair aka Salone Del Mobile presenting our new furniture and accessories at Stand C4.

Follow our updates from the fair on instagram (@generalaesthetic and @lvnya_), on facebook, twitter and of course we shall post a string of pictures on the blog after the after.

dxd exhibtion 3

There’s this exhibition coming up, and we’re in it! A deep voice on the phone informed me a few Wednesdays ago that we’ve been invited to present our work at the 20 under 35 show organised as an annual event by designXdesign, a collaboration of Studio iF and Alliance Francaise de Delhi. The deep voice happens to be that of Iftekhar Mulk Chishti, whom I’m told is one of Delhi’s design and architecture czars. The exhibit launches on the 7th of February, which is three days away. We’re currently neck deep into preparing a hopefully sensible exhibit composed of hung wall screens and a collapsible table I now adore in the way it’s turned out. Photographs shall follow. Please do drop by if you’re in Delhi during February 7th through 27th.
