Event Description : 
ART EXHIBITION : DALMIA BHARAT collaborates with India Habitat Centre's Photosphere festival for a shared vision on sustainable development with Craft Béton, an exhibition of functional art crafted from world’s greenest cement & created by six international designers.

This has to be one of the most unusual and forward looking collaborations between a corporate house and a non-governmental organisation. Dalmia Bharat, the world’s greenest cement company, has joined hands with India Habitat Centre to present a unique exhibition titled Craft Béton – Cement. Reimagined. Being held under the aegis of Habitat Photosphere, India Habitat Centre’s year-long multi-disciplinary arts festival on sustainable development curated by Dr Alka Pande, Craft Béton is what happens when the world’s most used man-made material is put in the hands of internationally acclaimed designers. You get creations with the finesse and form of an art piece, detailing and function of world-class design and craftsmanship to admire.

Says Sundeep Kumar, Chief Executive (Craft Béton), Dalmia Bharat: “This new collection by six international designers not only features contemporary lifestyle pieces for the home but presents a mesmerising array of functional art for walls, floors and even bathrooms. This unique collection is a celebration of nature, art, life and abstract forms, from where the designers find their inspiration. Craft Béton is a work of pride by Dalmia Bharat and truly showcases the beauty and versatility of cement. It rethinks art and redefines perception.”

Adds Dr Alka Pande, Artistic Director and Curator who has conceptualised and envisioned Habitat Photosphere: “The design philosophy of Craft Béton dovetails beautifully into the over-arching philosophy driving Photosphere. The beauty which is inherent in cement and is recreated by Dalmia Bharat through the creativity of human intervention is truly spectacular. This is an astonishing collaboration of production and consumption. It’s a rare feast for the eyes.”

Says designer Cynthia Rodriguez about Antheneum: “Since knowledge is an unfathomable ocean, these bookends are a dramatic way to literally expand your mind. The more you read the more you know, and the more your mind expands.” She adds about Monarca: “Just as a butterfly is re-born this magazine rack celebrates the metamorphosis that a person undergoes when he steps into the wonderful world of reading.”

Designer Iti Tyagi says: “‘Paris is a good idea’, the iconic Hollywood actress Audrey Hepburn once said. Inspired by her words, this table Audrey  is a delicate tale told in the French Louis XV Style.”

Designer Alan Saga says about GanasDeux: “The Mayans of Mesoamerica worshiped Chac - a long-nosed god, just as the Hindus worship Ganesha. These renditions are in the shape of the trunk that symbolizes flexibility and freedom.”

Designer Miroslaw Baca says about Birth: “The voice and smell of the mother is recognised by the baby from birth. Such senses are the threads that connect human lives together. This wall lamp in the shape of a mother’s womb is reminiscent of the first touch we have all experienced.”

Designer Somesh Singh says about Melissa: “This honey-bee wall installation draws its inspiration from the Gond art of Bhajju Shyam, and is for those who like art with a sweet twist.”
