Dear IAnDian,

The urge to do something different consumes us all at some point or the other. So, we bring you that something different in three different scenarios of interiors (two from China) and not to leave fashion behind – you can read about designer Payal Khandwala’s reversible sarees!

The right kind of lighting can play a very significant role in the design and the mood that emanates from its confines. Check out GD Lighting Design’s take on an expansive office in a mixed-use building in Guangzhou, China. Subtlety at its best!

The other project from Guangzhou is an all-black interior envelope that literally creates a variety of moods in different shades of black. Understated and mesmerising; yet, perhaps, a trifle boring in the long run.

On the fashion front, the reversible saree could light up your mood – not to mention – your wardrobe; especially since you get two for the price of one! And, it’s different!

Warmly,

Can we really separate art from design?

Dear IAnDian,

There is something about the world of art and design. Look closely and it will show you a glimpse of vulnerability. It may not percolate to the details but, certainly at the macro level, you can sense that little sensitive inkling of perhaps… the desire to conform?! In our stories this week, all are interwoven with an underlying artistic element.

So, you will see Studio Osmosis transform a small space to appear large using simple materials and approach with a touch of whimsy. The same small space concept blends with the whimsical in the single room for two by Studio Ben Allen that ingenuously brings architectural installation and interior design on the same plane.

Whether it is refurbishing a heritage property – the traditional Baserri in Northern Spain, or a luxurious home that exploits the ingenuity of contemporary and traditional artists to create bespoke signature pieces, art is at the heart of design!

Enjoy the issue.

Dear IAnDian,

There is always an unidentified depth in design. Irrespective, whether it is a large building, an everyday product or just a small, seemingly insignificant detail of design. All it needs is the trained eye. This issue is abuzz with both - design and details.

From awe-inspiring - like the shadow play architectural installation by Lucion Media, to repurposed antique jewellery with fine silver and ornamental gold flourishes by the amazingly enterprising Lara Morakhia; from the enamoured-with-everyday-objects - designed by Paul Sandip - winner of three Red Dot honours and the brain behind a lot of our taken-for-granted useful objects, to the introduction of quirk as a specifier - as you will see in out Product Hub offerings; to the soul searching of the cover story - an all-white apartment from Spain by none other than Ar. Fran Silvestre... every story we bring you imparts a take-away.

So, beat the heat and get immersed in some cool stuff. And, yes please, continue writing to us. All your feedback is being published in conjunction with the respective features. And, your valuable suggestions are being deliberated upon by our teams.

Warmly,

Dear IAnDian,

Luxe has a new meaning. And this can be attributed to the fact that the consumer is very well informed and much more confident about his choices than perhaps, he ever was. With design and aesthetics being completely dictated by personal taste and style, personalisation is key, and the degree of comfort is relative.

Ar. Arun Sharma of Atrey & Associates takes on our cover this week as he showcases luxury in space, form, choice of products and furniture that appoint the home and in designing a home, where indoors and outdoors seamlessly integrate. Here is a truly a luxurious home!

You will see the definition of luxury changing as you visit our next project - the all-white interior by ShroffLeon that is simple and understated yet transforms the look and feel of homely.

Speaking of home and hearth, five designers do us proud on the international circuit by having exhibited at the Salone del mobile.

Let me leave you to discover it all for yourself!

Warmly (literally!),

Dear IAnDian,

When Frank Lloyd Wright said that “the mother art is architecture”, he was referring to a profound integration of different disciplines that come together for the benefit of the whole. To understand this in its full profundity, is a feat in itself. Many a times, what meets the eye and what touches the soul are two very different things – emanating from the same premise. Think about it. In fact, apply it to context as we unveil the week’s fare for you: theme-based office cum showroom by Spaces Architects@ka has Delhi-based Ar. Kapil Agarwal thematically deconstruct the way the factory works to arrive at a beautifully defined store-cum-manufacturing space without compromising on the aesthetic.

And aesthetic can have its own agenda: the building that sings proves this. Design firm, DMOA demonstrates that soundscapes, when effected along a building façade can make an interesting design story with human perception and behaviour at its core.

Then there is the public art installation that uses yet another interface of communicating diverse parameters of societal evolution to a person. And the list goes on…

Cheers to an enjoyable read!

Dear IAnDian,

When we look at design, the first thing that drives a connect is the sensitivity ingrained in the ethos of the space, the product, or sometimes in the little details that define the macro picture.
Purpose-driven design introduces us to a premeditated conceptual approach - a means to an end. You will find this quality dominating our cover story - an ephemeral workspace - where an intense treatment belies the sensitivity of a well-defined methodology. Ar. Samira Rathod weaves the charm of abstraction into a simple office interior, underlining its work culture as a statement for all (who wish) to see. I would suggest that you read between the lines as our correspondent, Beverly enunciates the hidden via the obvious.

And the issue is packed with more... a youthful restaurant in Russia; a review of the Mezza card game; you can view Sunday's live updates of the launch on our Facebook channel @indiaartndesign and read the review of the just launched new electric car, Strom 3 in Mumbai; the first-of-its-kind write-and-erase robot; a delicate approach to housing ceramic heirlooms for posterity - the ceramics museum and more...

Until next week...

Warmly,
Savitha Hira

Dear IAnDian,

There's a very cheerful ring to the new financial year. A new series of editorial planning, fresh approaches, even a new volume of our weekly issues. So, while we thank you immensely for all the trust that you repose in us, our team continues to work relentlessly on bringing you design experiences to remember. Stay tuned and look out for some very delectable goodies to pop out of our stables every now and again!

Our stories this week visit Studio PKA and the plush home that they've recently designed in South Mumbai. Another plush home in Hyderabad by Think Designz - palatial, in fact. And the common thread that runs here is the warmth of home and hearth that the architects have infused into these chic abodes. In contrast is the close-to-nature lakeside cottage with its quaint stilts and rich architectural vocabulary. A library for contemporary readers and a bit about adding a streak of sheen to your décor. All this and more!


Warmly,
Savitha Hira
