Wellcome Trust Window Installation
Tomorrow evening the London-based design duo Nipa Doshi and Jonathan Levien will have a conversation at the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum about their new furniture collection for Moroso that combines handmade and industrial production, a design approach that reflects a cross-cultural creative process. Nipa Doshi says, "I love my cheap colourful plastic bangles as much as my beautifully crafted jewellery. I am inspired when an East London Bangladeshi girl dresses in her traditional salwar kameez and wears trainers, speaking a mix of Bengali and cockney." Their new furniture collection features techniques such as quilting and applique mixed with bright colors and cheeky themes.
Guests will have the opportunity to view the installation of the new Doshi-Levien work in the Great Hall at the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum.
