SPACE10 wants to learn from India

SPACE10 opens a new research and design lab in Delhi, India. The goal is to create a collaborative platform where experts, creatives and specialists in multiple fields can meet, experiment, and prototype solutions, that can enable a better everyday life for people and planet. 

SPACE10 Delhi will be located in South Delhi, inside Chatarpur’s Dhan Mill Compound – an upcoming area for emerging design studios, artists, creatives and young professionals. Delhi’s new creative hub opens on November 22, 2019 and will run till April 15, 2020. 

Innovation doesn’t happen in isolation so we want to anchor our research and design process closer to people. We want to invite people in, gain new knowledge and perspectives, and engage forward-thinking partners in exploring, designing and testing sustainable solutions that enable more people to live a better everyday life, wherever they are. We hope SPACE10 Delhi ignite ideas, perspectives and solutions that wouldn’t have been possible anywhere else.

A platform for design and innovation  

SPACE10 Delhi will host a public program – presenting everything from community talks and exhibitions to workshops and rapid prototyping. The aim is to gather local designers, technologists, artists, architects, academics, entrepreneurs and activists under one roof to explore and discuss how design and emerging technologies can create a better everyday life for people and planet. 

SPACE10 Delhi is a not-for-profit platform, open to the public, where diverse talents can meet, share and play. The program explores everything from digital fabrication and open source design to clean energy solutions and augmented reality. SPACE10 Delhi will also host residencies and collaborate with a myriad of partners – both local and international.  

Why India?

SPACE10 is based in Copenhagen and has previously popped up in cities like New York, London, Shanghai and Nairobi, but SPACE10 Delhi is the first of its kind – an entirely new SPACE10 location beyond Copenhagen. 

We want to be where the future is. India has a young, educated and tech savvy population and will soon be the most populated country on Earth with a fifth of the world’s youth living there. India is also one of the most diverse countries on the planet with the fastest growing economy. We therefore consider India extremely inspiring and as the ideal place to learn and explore new sustainable and scalable solutions that can help combat real problems for real people.

Opens on SPACE10’s fourth year anniversary

SPACE10 Delhi will open with a launch event on Friday November 22 – marking the four year anniversary of SPACE10.
