The Mandala comes from the Eastern schools of spirituality. The form of a mandala was adapted and deconstructed into simpler, more recognizable patterns for this installation. The space is characterized with tonal differences of different types of white marble carvings lined with mother of pearl and accents of rose quartz and green aventurine.
Continuum came from my fascination with the Elysian forms in and around the ocean. The sea-bed, the water currents, and the interplay between the two created these sinuous, fluid, and ever-changing forms. Created to capture the inherent energy, dynamism and translucency of water, the Continuum is marked by sinuous curves which immortalize the beauty of the vast oceans.
This installation was made in the truest spirit of repurposing the rich heritage of the past. Some of the stones used in creating this unique look were carved, rough split stones sourced from almost decaying ancient ruins. This aesthetic was furthered by carving “mantras” as chosen by the client.
Art Deco is one of the largest and heaviest architectural installations designed solely by me. Combining the simplicity of the art deco style with art inspired from Indian step down wells allowed me to create this unique design. This installation covers a space of roughly 25 ft height and a staggering 50 ft in width.
The Hex skin façade was designed mindfully to become a one of a kind architectural installation. Following the brief, the base design began by spreading a regular hexagonal mesh across the building envelope. The careful engraving and embossing of the hexagonal shapes to create a surface of unique elements which also extends within the building in certain spaces.
Xylem was created through careful study of the nutrient carrying network of plants. The latticework of this architectural installation is complimented by the xylem sculptures at its base. Our design interprets the roots and intricate vein networks of plants, by bringing the pattern thus formed, into focus by scaling the network up proportionately.
Ridge, as the name suggests, was inspired by the chain of mountains that form a continuous elevated crest. In this design, the sides of the ridge which slope away from the narrow top on either side are visualised horizontally over a surface to give the impression of an unending mountain line.
The Puritsu pattern of the Ishi-Kiri collection was selected for this elegant water fountain due to its natural pleat-like formation. This organic pattern was inspired by the ancient art of paper folding. The design of the Puritsu compliments the natural tendency of water to flow following the path carved out for it.
Conceptualised from the ripples generated within a still water body through a droplet, this design is both aesthetically pleasing and utilitarian.
