It is a comprehensive forum covering every vertical, offering every element, from smart devices to turnkey solutions. We would like to be at the forefront of defining the aspirations of the common man on the one hand and helping with design solutions for our government departments on the other. This time the showcase is based on a Theme of Arts & Crafts. While encouraging the Artisans, weavers and craftsman of the Art & Crafts industry, IIID-HRC has uniquely conducted educative workshops for the Designers, Students and Architects by the Artisans and craftsman.

In order to take the vision forward, IIID HRC is organizing series of workshops and competitions for Architecture and Interior Design students across Hyderabad. The students from across 20 colleges participated in various workshops and competitions like Design Intervention, workshop on Best out of waste, and a Design competition. These works of students would be displayed in the showcase. The Best from waste workshop by the students and the design competition have been curated by Ar. Sridhar Reddy, Mentors are Ar.

The Chairperson of IIID HRC Ar. Manoj Wahi observed that “we have had a great mix of architects, interior designers, design related trade professionals, builders, project managers, MEP consultants, as well as industry specifiers from defense, government and the corporate sectors and serious homebuilders that will be visiting the Expo. Being at the cusp of development in the two sister States of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh, I think we are strategically placed to build a stronger industry presence through this medium. IIID is in the 50th year of establishment and the Hyderabad Chapter celebrated its 25th year last year. This Showcase is an attempt to reach out to all the Designers and is the biggest event in this category held in the combined Telugu states. Hyderabad is the fastest growing city with respect to commercial and real estate and the design fraternity has benefitted the most. This Showcase is at the right place at the right time and will serve as a catalyst for generating further growth in the interior designing fraternity. Around 2000 designers are expected to attend this Expo, and an overall footfall of 4000 vis expected during the three days. Through arts and craft theme we are trying to enhance the patronage and integrate our traditional arts and crafts into the new interior designing, thereby reduce the dependence imported design solutions. This will get the traditional arts and crafts back into the flavour and tap the huge potential in our designs. The thrust of the Expo is also technology as lot of design work is being driven by technology. ”

Ar. B Nanda Kumar, Immediate past Chairman, IIID-HRC; said, “this event connects all our trade partners who provide the material which embellishes our projects with the designers. Through this we will reach out to every architect and interior designer in both the Telugu states and outside. Bamboo workshop is being hosted as part of this Expo, as bamboo is one of the sustainable materials used for both structural and decorative purposes. The Workshop helps the students to familiarize with the material and how it can be used. The outcome of the bamboo workshop will be displayed at the IIID pavilion during the three days. The other Workshop is on ‘Best out of Waste’, our industry generates lot of waste as a byproduct, we are trying to get the students to work with the waste that’s generated and create structures and installations with them. Also at the event students tend to meet designers, get to know new material, and figure out how to use them and make them productive. Covid brought a paradigm shift in the workspaces and how we live, you need a conducive space to work from home. These needs are bringing in new trends in designing too, introducing smart homes, smart workspaces, and sustainable spaces. The airconditioned boxes our workspaces used to be needed a paradigm change which can make the work or home spaces more livable with fresh air inputs, hepa filters to clean up and more.”

Ar. Navin Chalasani, Co Convenor of the Expo explained that “The exhibition will showcase the best and latest trends for interiors, with participation of 120+ Exhibitors and 500+ Brands from 50+ categories, spread across two halls, thus creating a single platform for the Trade Associates to interact with the best in Industry.”
