Design Experimentation on show at Porosity Kabari Exhibition

Studio-X Mumbai’s Porosity Kabari exhibition launches this evening, showcasing the results of three designers who have spent three weeks in Mumbai’s Chor Bazaar designing and fabricating a series of objects.


Encouraging the role of architecture in social innovation and sustainability, Porosity Kabari is an interdisciplinary, cross-cultural, collaborative project whereby Australian object designer Trent Jansen, and architect/sculptor Richard Goodwin, have worked with Indian graphic/object designer Ishan Khosla as well as students from ISDI Parsons Mumbai.

The project challenges the designers to collaborate in Mumbai’s ‘Chor Bazaar’ (thieves market) and ‘Studio X’, using the bazaar as their only source of materials and making processes.

What can only be described as jugaading their way through Mumbai’s manic market place, the three have crafted experimental objects sourced from their surrounds. Jagaad – a word taken from Hindi that captures the meaning of finding a low-cost solution to any problem in an intelligent way – aptly sums up the Porosity Kabari project, where the three present a new way to think constructively and differently about design.

In the bazaar, the designers have been encouraged to learn from spontaneous conversation and experimentation with the local vendors and crafts people, and conversely, Studio X have provided the designers a space for considered discussion and precise prototyping, in the development of refined ideas to be taken back into the bazaar.

The results of their experience will be exhibited at Studio X.
