seeing red

Welcome to the follow-up to what was our surprise hit of last year, The Blue Issue. The one we thought might be too conceptual, but proved to be a winning idea for its focused simplicity. For 2019, we’ve picked red from the rainbow. Why red alert? From ruby to terracotta, and Chinese lacquer to Corten steel, we found rouge to be the colour du jour in global design. And in India, we found it in Bikaner, where we sent blue-blooded photographer Avani Rai to shoot its earthy architecture; in Laurie Baker’s magnificent brick; and in a spectacular new laterite home in Goa the AIS Glass Villa designed by Sameep Padora, with interiors by Tarun Tahiliani. Personally, I use red only as an accent. My apartment is almost all black and…

ALEXANDER VREELAND writer Vreeland’s lengthy career in fashion and luxury has included working for legends such as Ralph Lauren and Giorgio Armani, leading start-ups and running businesses in apparel, home furnishings, jewellery and beauty. In ‘Oh Diana!’ (pg 238), the New York-based father of four, who handles the Diana Vreeland Estate, wrote about his grandmother’s passionate preoccupation with red. “[She] loved red!” KAPIL GUPTA writer The co-founder of architecture firm Serie Architects writes about architects’ and artists’ love for weathering steel (pg 196)—a material that celebrates the aesthetic of ageing by forming a layer of surface rust, the colours of which range from bright orange to Titian red, and go all the way to burgundy. JIGNESH JHAVERI photographer The self-taught, Mumbai-based image maker, photographer and cinematographer prefers constructed imagery as opposed to ‘found’ images—building, lighting and creating both…

the ad design show

The second edition of the AD Design Show, presented by Asian Paints, is everything you found in the inaugural edition and more. In a luxuriant, low-lit atmosphere, the electric energy will return with a potent mix of design, contemporary art, antiques, lighting and accessories. Cult-status names, including Humberto Campana, Ilse Crawford and Viren Bhagat headline the speaker programme. Our captivating showcase of live craftsmanship highlights the rare form of Longpi pottery. But the talking point is sure to be Le Cabinet de Curiosités, curated by Jean-François Lesage (pictured) with scenography by Niels Schoenfelder. A sophisticated mise-en-scène of high-concept embroidered rooms filled with the best of global design, it encapsulates the essence of the show itself. Prepare to be dazzled. 18-20 October, Dome@NSCI, Mumbai; www.adindiadesignshow.in…

le cabinet de curiosités

Here’s the thing about history: it almost never stays buried in the past. And sometimes, that’s a good thing. That’s what we discovered when our search for a pièce de résistance, for the second edition of the AD Design Show, took us back to the 17th century and the Renaissance. At the time, an innovative form of high-thinking recreation was all the rage; old-world aristocrats had hit upon a great party idea—the cabinet of curiosities. Rooms full to overflowing with objects of the host’s personal interests would spill out of drawers, crowd countertops, jostle for space on walls, catching the attention of guests as they strolled through rooms designed to shock. After all, there are few places where taxidermy animals, human skulls, works of art and well-crafted antiques can be…

power talks

VIREN BHAGAT Often described as “greatest jeweller you’ve never heard of”, Viren Bhagat, at 62, is as understated as his designs are dazzling—which is to say, very. A master of the contemporary-meets-classic style of jewellery design, his pieces have been seen in world-class museums, have sold for millions at international auction houses, and feature in the collections of jewellery connoisseurs and champions of luxury craftsmanship. ILSE CRAWFORD For more than two decades, British designer Ilse Crawford has been shaking up the design world with her razor-sharp ideas and warm yet cutting-edge aesthetic. Her work transcends fashion, interiors, furniture and homeware, and her practice is centred on emotional design. She uses form, shape, texture and material to enhance the human experience. SABYASACHI MUKHERJEE The celebrated fashion designer needs no introduction. At AD Design Show, he talks…
