DESIGN FIND: SHOWROOM /
My copy of showroom / just arrived and I couldn’t be more thrilled to share it. showroom / was recently launched by Lovebirds (whose S/S 2014 lookbook I published on the blog last year), a fashion label and creative studio run by the talented duo Amrita Khanna and Gursi Singh where they ‘focus on everything we love’.
Produced on high quality newsprint, showroom / is essentially a poster zine and a fabulous and novel way to share and disseminate works by the country’s finest artists and designers as each double page spread is a pull out, and offers a brief introduction to the artist and artwork.
The debut issue comprises pieces by some of India’s most iconic names such as Bharat Sikka, BLOT! and some of my favourites such as Janine Shroff and Shweta Malhotra (I love girls) collated by Lovebirds. ‘A centrefold publication featuring works from graphic designers, visual artists, illustrators, information designers, photographers and art directors who are shaping the visual culture across India’, the duo plans on exploring themes in future issues on top of turning it into quarterly independent art publication.
I will definitely be framing at least one.
showroom / is currently available at Lovebirds flagship store, en inde, Nappa Dori, CMYK and Bodice stores in Delhi, Amethyst in Chennai, Bombaim in Calcutta and Bombay Electric in Mumbai.
