Description: Ingegerd Råman

INGEGERD RÅMAN is one of the prominent figures in Swedish design. Timelessness and simplicity are the key words in her work. Her artistry is not showy, yet right on the mark, and she makes objects that she herself likes. Her creations are utility items focusing on food, drink and the set table. She aims to streamline and focus her designs, yet retain a feeling of pleasure and beauty in the object; otherwise simplicity and streamlining become a pitfall. She has designed many timeless and personal products for Orrefors since 1999. INDISKA and Ingegerd Råman have created a collection in order to collect funds to the WaterAid foundation. Ingegerd has also designed a collection for INDISKA stores. 20 % of each sold item is donated to the WaterAid and their vital work for safe water, sanitation and hygiene in India.

Ravi Venkatesan offers inside advice on how your firm can overcome the unique challenges of the Indian market. He argues that chaotic India is in fact an archetype for most emerging markets, many of which present similar challenges but not the same potential.
