His endeavour, The India Design Project is an initiative to explore collaborations & discussions contributing to various aspects of Indian Design (Education, Research & Documentation). With an emerging market of over a billion people, there is a need to understand the opportunities it provides to present day designers, architects and craftsmen.
Ishaan Dixit, as a founder of the IDP, is dedicated to provide a platform to collaborate and address such issues and projects. According to him, “Design in contemporary scenario needs to be recognized through a plural definition, more as collaborative, social and behavioral act than just process framed around 2D/3D creations. It is time that we understand our own design history and create systems to drive things ahead.”
