editor’s note

I always knew that my heart and mind was inclined towards the aesthetically beautiful interiors. But while recently working on a project for one of our group magazine, which took me to different parts of India, covering many heritage sites (few of them part of UNESCO’s World Heritage Site), I found my new found love for architecture. After a long long session of discussions on buildings and heritage sites, the team nose-dived and explored many stunning examples of modern, neo-classical, post modern architecture and their creators who have broken conventional rules and pushed the boundaries of their professions, to achieve perfection. We decided to celebrate these architects who have inspired generations to go beyond the physical in investigating and exploring the possibility of planning, designing, and construction (pg 65). Let’s talk colours!…

letter of the month

Green Zone Today the environment around us is highly polluted. The metros are slowly, but steadily turning into concrete jungles. Trees are getting either pruned or completely hacked in the garb of development. What are we giving our coming generations – nothing but pure garbage. It is magazines like TIHG that is spreading awareness among the new generation about the benefits of growing trees in our close vicinity and plants withing the four walls of our homes through Green House articles. As an environmentalist, and an enthusiastic reader, I have a simple request to the Editor - try and incorporate more articles on how to bring the outdoors indoor. In this way the young generation will at least show an inclination towards growing more trees. Abhinav Deshmukh (Environmentalist), Pune On Cloud Nine As a…

behind the design

1 Inspiration behind Le Jahan? I have always been interested in packaging. One of the major reasons was the lack of availability and my strong belief in ‘Make in India.’ 2 The collections reflect? The collections reflect a grandeur in the mundane and otherwise disposable packaging. 3 Motivation behind the brand? Born out of necessity and a lack of good quality and tasteful accents. 4 Your normal work day is like? I love waking up to a working day because it means I will be able to create something that will take someone’s breath away. 5 What cheers you up at work? When a new product turns out exactly the way you imagined it would and the customer loves it as much as us. 6 Working with artisans? Yes.

Catering to the upwardly, cosmopolitan clientele of the vicinity, the Tony & Guy is spread across 1,550 sqft and was designed to create a distinctive salon space-inside and out-to help introduce the brand to its setting. Talking about the challenge while setting the space, Bhanu Kharbanda shares, “The aim was to create a unique identity with the help of the building facade and the desired functionality of a salon. We were asked to create different spaces for varied activities in order to create an overall continuous and homogeneous space.” The salon uses a warm and grounded design strategy, centered around an industrial look and feel. The spatial layout helps craft a largely free-flowing interior space. As you enter, a reception accosts the visitors, opposite to which lies a waiting area.…
