Mumbai hosts Swedish Design exhibition till March 25

Matunga’s S. P. Mandali’s Prin. L. N. Welingkar Institute of Management Development and Research (WeSchool), is temporarily exhibiting an array of brilliant products at the ‘Ung Svensk Form design exhibition’, which is in cooperation with the Consulate General of Sweden in Mumbai. On its Asia tour, this exhibition has travelled from Hong Kong to Seoul, and now to Mumbai, and has 19 products designed by Swedish designers, with the focus on sustainable designs clubbed with circular economy. Consul Nils Eliasson said, “This exhibit highlights the importance of global challenges like climate change and also throws light on the benefits of circular bioeconomy and sustainability.”

The exhibition also has some remarkable products on display, which were designed by the students of WeSchool. It is organised by Svensk Form (The Swedish Society of Crafts and Design) in cooperation with ArkDes, IKEA, the City of Malmö and Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair. The Swedish designs have a contemporary feel to them and some of them tapped into the environmental perils and the current global migration crisis. From paintings and music to furniture, compostable composite and unisex outfits—these Swedish designs are all encompassing. Dr. Uday Salunkhe, Group Director of WeSchool said, “The value of sustainability in deeply embedded in Indian culture. India’s reliance on natural forces in Yoga and Ayurveda has inspired people across the globe to embrace mother earth. Swedish Design exhibition is a conscious effort from Sweden and India to highlight the urgency of sustainability in a digital world.”

The exhibition is open to all and can be viewed at Nirvana Room, Welingkar Institute of Management Development & Research (WeSchool), till March 25 from 11am to 4pm, free of cost.
