How can one use good design to create rooms and products that also have an intercultural impact? What is about in the present and what does that mean for the future? What is happening in India at the moment: Green India – utopian or real? The motto of the future is: Less is more. Poonam Choudhry will present exciting impulses in her lecture.
Are the continually changing flexible rooms, filled with innovative and classic products, a reflection of the modern metropolis society and our smart future, surrounded by cyberspace, new materials, 2D, 3D and 4D?

The significance of smart and sustainable are hereby influencing the way designer products and interiors will be designed in future.
