The presentation of the partner country will cover a wide range of products by traditional crafts and artisans and it reflects a deep understanding of mythology, architecture and culture through a contemporary aesthetic. Curated and designed by the Jaipur-based designer Ayush Kasliwal, this year’s exhibition will be shown again at Galleria 1. Kasliwal, an alumnus of the National Institute of Design, Ahmedabad, is one of India’s leading design thinkers, practitioners and advocates for artisans.
"I am very pleased that we were able to win the Republic of India as a partner country for the next Ambiente – India has an incomparable diversity, a rich culture and also a tradition of art and craft. It’s also among our absolute top countries in terms of exhibitors. I’m confident that its presentation will be a real highlight at Ambiente 2019 for visitors and exhibitors from all over the world," said Stephan Kurzawski, senior vice president, Messe Frankfurt Exhibition GmbH.
Through inclusive business practices, he redefines ancient local craft traditions and artisan communities by providing design, technology, capital, and creative collaboration. He works in multiple ways, from small batch manufacturing, to artisan driven orders finished at his factory, to interiors and large scale on-site installations throughout India. He believes that 'Objects are messages in physical form', Messe Frankfurt said in a press release.
In 2018, Ambiente attracted 4,376 exhibitors from 88 countries, showcasing their innovative products and services for five days. India was represented by 434 companies, the second highest participation among the exhibiting nations. The top ten visitors’ nations after Germany were Italy, China, France, United Kingdom, US, the Netherlands, Spain, South Korea, Turkey and Switzerland. (RR)
