Special Issue commemorating a month-long focus on the role of art in interior design and architecture with Guest Editor for the month – Shabnam Gupta


Dear IAnDians,

The truth is that art adorning the walls can make or break a room, rendering it timelessly chic or permanently tragic. The trick is to recognize the fine line between the perfect adjunct and the overkill; and to use this to one’s full advantage.

Too often in interior design, we see art treated as an afterthought. It’s what gets dealt with last; whereas, when chosen thoughtfully and preempting it in the stages of design, the right wall art can provide for the entire space, transforming it.

One of the most basic principles that I personally love of interior design is that every room needs a focal point, or a single design element that will instantly draw the eye into the space and give the viewer a sense of what to expect. It goes without saying that a great piece of wall art or installation could easily achieve this aim.

“Art installations have an inseparable symbiotic relationship with a designed space. Though their medium of expressions may differ greatly, they leave a lasting impression on the space and its user.” This quote best describes our unique approach in design for the new outlet of The Bar Stock Exchange in Mumbai.

Reflections of my thinking have echoed in the many projects that have been featured throughout February – be it lighting, textures, furniture… basically, striking a balance between art and design makes for a successful design formula.

Enjoy the last leg of the art-focus features. Au revoir!
