Simi Design Free Downloadable Calendar-March 2013

Happy Monday everyone!

If you remember sometime back I had mentioned that I am a part of a project where we, 12 designers from all over the world, have come together to design a free downloadable calendar to celebrate every month of this year 2013. The project is the brain child of the fabulous designer from Italy, Maria Jose' Bautista V, who also designed the first calendar for the month of January 2013.

March is designed by me!! A little preview of the design you can see below but to download the calendar in high resolution as a printable version please click here and enjoy brightening up your desktop!

Inspiration for my calendar : Spring is round the corner and my design for month of march is a celebration of spring and everything that's fresh and new

Trends 2013 at Ambiente

This week I was at the Ambiente Fair in Frankfurt and was a bit dismayed by the fair. Its sad to see recession showing its signs everywhere, creating an environment where we rather play it safe than experiment or innovate. Nonetheless a few fab innovators caught my eye and I will share some of their work in the upcoming days here.

Sharing high-resolution, downloadable style-boards for the Trends 2013 seen at Ambiente






Have a great weekend everyone. See you monday!

Anna Anička, you made my day!

2008, I was exhibiting my designs at Heimtextil Frankfurt for a couple of customers and took help from a lovely student studying in Frankfurt called Anna  Anička

By the end of the show my customers found it hard to take a lot of prototypes back to India as we had a lot of duplicates or rather triplicates, so I asked Anna if she wanted a few odd designs of chair pads and pillow covers and curtains which I had designed. I was so happy that she charmingly took my offer

Recently she emailed me a picture of a beautiful wooden oak chair that she had upholstered with my floral jacquard fabric-Gosh Anna you made my day!

Queer Carpets - Agustina Woodgate

Products that emote are the ones that connect you to a story, to a memory or to a life. 
Agustina Woodgate makes these hand-sewn and designed rugs made from recycled stuffed animals skins. The process starts with the departure of the loving life objects have when they are in the hands of their owners.The rugs not only reference the personal histories of the toy's owners, but investigate the rug as an object organizing and displaying memories and lineages.

Have a great weekend and see you all on Monday!
