If you’d followed the winding brick road towards Shakti Mills on the 16th of November, you would’ve been witness to panel discussions, brilliant artwork and installations, plates of food and flowing alcohol at the ID Satellite street party, hosted by the participating 5 stores and restaurant.
The Art and Design Trail kicked off with the unveiling of new collections, dishes and collaborations with art galleries and artists from contemporary restaurant Masque and home decor hubs Abaca, FCML, Red Blue and Yellow, Tranceforme and Sarita Handa. You’ll find art from around the country with Vaishali Shadangule’s fabric installations from Gallery Art & Soul and Smriti Dixit’s work from Art Musings gallery, to Siddharth Kerkar’s paintings from Museum of Goa and curated work from both Sakshi Gallery and Crayon Art Gallery.
Starting the festivities was the panel discussion at Masque, with Head Chef Prateek Sadhu, Dutch graphic designer Mark de Roo, Srila Chatterjee from Baro India and architect Rajeev Thakkar as the eminent panelists. Masque owners Aditi Duggar and Prateek Sadhu served up a delicious interpretation of Jitish Kallat’s photographic work as well. A few steps away, Rashida Baker of Abaca and Tranceforme’s Purvi Parekh greeted guests like Jyoti Gwalani, Chirag Dewan, Elsie Nanji and Laila and Farhan Furniturewala. We also spotted Asim Merchant and Karishma Bajaj from Red Blue Yellow sharing a drink with Dior India’s Anurag Tyagi, while Abhinav Khandelwal from FCML posed for pictures with Amit Vadhera and Gaurav Karan from Crayon Art Gallery. Rahul Puri also played host with Hema Aref with platters of sushi and dim sum at Sarita Handa that drew celebrity interior designer Ashiesh Shah.
