Editorial

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

Dear IAnDian,

Time and again, we have been going back to our ancient texts and practices - food, lifestyle, health... to stem the emotional and physiological disturbances of a jet-setting lifestyle. In more ways than one, slow living is a lifestyle solution that could perhaps bring about the much-awaited difference - and bridge the gap between the compassionate ethos of say, the 1970's - 80's and the devil-may-care now!

Ar. Amit Srivastava resorts to this method in his own abode at Vadodara. Living an enriching, sorted life, literally from the earth, and off the earth is humbling and inspirational. Do check out the story. On similar lines, is the wood and glass home that is beatifically ensconced in nature. Minimalist and efficient, the architecture weaves a stunning narrative.

Perhaps, each of us should go back in time, just a little. A wee bit of introspection and an active resolve to adopt one - just one - element of a give-back-to-nature/society act. And we could review the joy and personal satisfaction the activity could bring.

Enjoy the issue.

Warmly,
Savitha Hira
