INDEX PROFESSIONAL WORK

Hello! An engineer before and now a Designer, I guess ‘How stuff works’ really kept me going in life. Being curious and explorative by nature , I settled with being a Designer and made it my ultimate passion. Working with Startups- Design Studios and Mobile Commerce companies allowed me to wear many hats and I explore various capabilities. It has helped me to get a hands on experience in the various technicalities of this field and I been able to learn well from my mistakes. Following the curiousity and passion, I took admission in a Masters course and attended school in Florence, Italy. The multi cultural exposure along with Travelling in Europe has definitely broadened my perspectives in the field of Design. I wish to absorb and implement all of this through my work. In my free time, I like to write blogs and content in Design. I have given my contribution to two furniture companies in the past one year. This portfolio contains some of my Professional, Freelance and Academic Projects. It is the result of passion, inspiration and constructive relationships. Thank you in advance for taking the time to review it.

All the famous works on Le Corbusier were studied. His design principles were broken down and analysed. The same points were applied in the design of a multi purpose bookshelf.

FURNITURE DESIGN Bookshelf COURSE

Grid like structures

Use of concrete & wood

Use of primary colors

The space between the concrete panels is necessary to break away from the seriousness of the heavy concrete. With primary colors against concrete and wood, this bookshelf comes across as a visual treat to brighten up any space. At the same time it exudes practicality and allows all kinds of storage. This makes order and logic possible.

CONCEPT Le Corbusier always focussed on functionality brought together by form. This bookshelf has been inspired by the design of the High Court Building in Chandigarh. Inspired by the mathematical shapes used, grid like facade, use of primary colors and basic materials like concrete and wood.
