Forbes India Design Awards honour ‘The best of the best’ in Indian Design and Architecture
Forbes India launched its first Forbes India Design Awards to celebrate the brightest design talent in the country and turn the spotlight on India’s design mavericks. The Forbes India Design Awards 2019 were presented at a high-profile evening in Mumbai and were attended by the biggest names from the Indian design industry.
The awards recognized and honored an entire spectrum of architectural and interior practices in India that are globally competitive and yet, are in sync with the country’s landscape, climate and environment. They were presented across 11 categories, including conservation & preservation of heritage monuments as well as social impact projects.
The winners were chosen by a team of 11 eminent jury members, who have set new benchmarks with their own practices and helped impart a contemporary language to the Indian design industry, while reinterpreting the country’s rich design past in newer, more modern ways. The winners were judged on very relevant criteria such as the sustainability factor embedded in their design, the use of local adaptive material and innovation.
Besides awarding established practices chosen by the jury from the submissions received, the Forbes India Design Awards 2019 also assume significance for recognising emerging talent in architecture and interiors.
