Everything you missed at the spectacular ED Dinner With Friends

by Reecha Kulkarni Dec 10, 2017 All the biggest names in Indian architecture and design converged at the glorious Mill Owner's Association Building on December 8, for the grand unveiling of the 17th Anniversary issue cover. And of course, to meet our rock star Guest Editor, Prof. BV Doshi, who also happens to be celebrating his 90th birthday this month.

Designed by Prof. Doshi's mentor, Le Corbusier, the iconic structure was an apt location, elegantly lit and tastefully decorated especially for ELLE DECOR’s Dinner With Friends.

The issue cover was revealed within the building, along with nostalgic stories from legends and friends Juhani Pallasmaa, Rolf Fehlbaum and Sen Kapadia. From anecdotal inspiration, the guests were then treated to a visual delight as they made their way to dinner. 

In the courtyard, 13 decadent tables — each superbly decorated to reflect an emotion or trait of our Guest Editor — were met with exclamations of awe. The tables were hosted by some of the biggest brands in the country, namely Good Earth, Nilaya by Asian Paints, Portside Cafe, Apartment 9, Seetu Kohli Concepts, Ralph Lauren Home, Sarita Handa, Klove, SIMONE... Naturally Inspired, Villeroy & Boch and Hafele. The guests were also served Prof Doshi’s memories on a plate, interpreted by Neeraj Sharda and Pooja Raheja from Eat Drink Design.

The fairy lights dimmed as the night ended, and guests left with gifts from the brands and lifestyle label No-Mad, unforgettable memories and a copy of our Collector’s Edition issue, signed by the legend himself.
