Holi brings joy and bridges the gaps…

HOLI - THE UNIVERSAL DESIGN  

 

HOLI - THE UNIVERSAL DESIGN

The real enlightenment on ‘Universal Design’ happened in my head when I saw everyone playing holi. That was surprising to see that the way German students playing holi was ‘the real way’ of playing Indian holi. They learnt so fast and so quickly that the design of holi proved to be ‘universal’ to the foreign cultures because of its intuitive nature.

For me the whole workshop till now was not something new, because any good design will cover the criteria for universal design. So I thought about the universal way of designing as a obvious criteria for a good design. And I was puzzled about the difference between just making a good design and giving special attention to the criteria of ‘universal design’. But by the end of a day by the end of the day I’ve realized that there is a difference. This is like the difference between just breathing and meditation (conscious breathing). Just breathing keeps you alive but the meditation adds in to the value of the life. Hence universal design becomes more important to improve the quality of life to make it easier  and simpler.

Enough of philosophy, but finally I am very happy with the products that we are coming up with which are the precision grip friendly hand gloves, the universal drinking vessel/glass and lot many other ideas which may remain in our idea bank to further develop them whenever we need.
