“The details are not the details, they make the design.” - Sir Charles Eames
Somehow I started strongly believing in it as I grew up with my age, experience and practice.
As a designer I feel why should I always just try to make design or force an element in the design to look different. Design to me is small details weaved together to form a one big picture or concept.
This is what our office is about. It’s about floating table (arised out of need, when office was small), designer handle crafted in wood, as the office doesn’t have the single handle or door knob. Cantilevered work stations, light, texture, wall finishes, suspended fishes (installations) all as a part of details, cohesively fit together in overall scheme.
Here in my office it was important for me to feel at home. I can work pretty late crazy hours, especially it needed to be comfortable, clean and escape from the chaos of the day when needed. My private backroom is the place where I get work done alone or meet my clients or pull out a bed and relax.
In my office, I have surrounded myself with the things that I love, have collected them through my work-leisure travel. Some may be expensive some may not; it’s just what I relate to.
I wanted a look that is professional, that express my taste and idea of how I work, yet not being formal and rigid.
My space and inspiration board contains paint, fabrics, switches, good library, attractive artifacts, photographs, chests, even mementos and souvenirs etc.
So for me my studio is a design in process and my journey so far, which does keep evolving with changing times.
