Design Yatra of IIID sows seeds for a well-designed tomorrow!

The Institute of Indian Interior Designers culminates its Design Yatra on 22nd July with a grandeur finale. The motto of ‘Reaching masses’ in terms of creativity and Design has certainly been achieved.

The visit to municipal school with YUVA Unstoppable cleaned a lot of air in terms of the sanitation design, which still requires improvement. Design Yatra’s visit to the distinguished Gandhi Ashram explained simplicity and durability of designs in true form. Also an extraordinary event took place while visiting Craftroots and meeting Ms. Anar Patel. She explained how design innovation and the amalgamation of artisans’ traditional aesthetics have actually transformed our life.
