Why a KDW (Kolkata Design Week)?
“Calcutta is a city with art baked into it’s DNA – right from our iconic yellow cabs, the magnanimous Victoria Memorial and down to the rikshaw pullers and jhalmuri vendors. From the beautiful eyes that adorn Kali to the modern offices in Sector V. We boast of Durga Puja, perhaps the most creative festival. There’s a sense of design, pride and individuality which comes together to form the sights, sounds and smells that are Calcutta. Hence a design week, a week dedicated to applied design seemed inevitable.”
