The ACE Tech Exhibition happens just once a year showcasing the top of the line technology used in the Architecture, Construction and Engineering Design (ACE) industry. This is Asia’s largest Architecture, Building Material & Design Exhibition held at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi from the 16-19th December 2021.
ACE is a part of the group based out of Mumbai
Multiple Indian and International brands participated in the exhibition. I would love to highlight the few I found really special.
This was one of the best concepts I found in the exhibition. An absolutely amazing idea to put the sunlight right into the living spaces. Called as Wellness lighting, the concept seems so realistic. The installation just requires a 10 inch thickness of the ceiling and does not require a direct access to roof to be present above the floor. This means that you have access to the benefits of sunlight in every room, even if the spaces within your abode are pretty much closed.
As per this concept, The Vāstuśāstra emphasizes constructing buildings and houses that allow sunlight from all around. Unfortunately due to unethical designs of our houses and workspaces, we are forced to spend time devoid of any source of natural light.
Magppie brings the concept of Wellness Architecture, deriving motivation from being one of the few Wellness brands in India. Taking inspiration from their Satvic Movement emerged their wellness kitchen and now to the profound Magppie Wellness Lighting, which is called as “Sunrooof”.
As they embark on this journey to bring human health – physical & emotional – via sunlight, they are transcending the lighting industry to merge it with the health industry.
“Magppie Sunrooof is our gift to the planet that is in dire need of protection at all times.” says the founder.

Again from the creators of the magical SUNROOOF concept, Magppie comes with an amazing range of kitchen designs and home interiors. Designed with utmost precision and keeping even minutest of its client’s details in mind, they design fully functional kitchen and living spaces.
“Magppie is not just a kitchen or furniture maker, but also a technology and design company with a focus on creating energy in the space.
Everything around us is made up of energy. A space filled with positive energy attracts positive emotions while a space filled with negative energy attracts negative emotions.

Overall an amazing event and interaction with the brands made me learn a lot about the upcoming technology within the industry. I picked up some books from the amazing book section of the exhibition with some really interesting title written by the masters of architecture and design.
There was also a dedicated VR (Virtual Reality) studio where anyone could experience the building or interior design by virtually walking in it and experiencing the grandeur. The futuristic technology such as the Metaverse AR VR has multiple application and great use cases which can revolutionize the industry.
