editor’s note

Furniture fairs and design festivals have been proliferating around the globe, filling up calendars with an extensive list of potential business trips.

We will surely give you a sneak peak into what’s hitting the trend market this year. Sometimes I feel that creativity can flow out of any of us. Beyond classical painting and sculpture, different art mediums open up a host of possibilities. The feature on such talented artists (pg 95) reminds us that the best kind of art is the one that leaves an experience. The powerful visual design style Art Deco is a universal style that combines classical craft…

Creating Magic The articles in TIHG are nothing short of magic. Each article is different and sets high standards. One such article, which I really enjoyed reading was ‘Paper Magicians’ in the January issue. We take paper for granted in our day to day use. However, the 6 artists have proved that paper can be used creatively as a piece of art. The ‘Design Rapid Fire’ section is my most favourite, as I know the next issue (February 2017) will surely churn out something different.

behind the design

Design to me... is like solving a problem. A good design is one that works. Through my designs... I dream to beautify homes by adding character to them. I like to make a living space more personal for my clients by adding something that also portrays their personality. I draw inspiration from... all cities and countries I visit. I love to travel and each time get inspired with its culture, people and surroundings. The design era that fascinates me the most... is pop art. What I’ve always loved about my work is... that it’s fun, quirky, yet simple and ideal price range for gifting. Kivik Designs collection includes... a huge variety of home decor and lifestyle products like photo frames, jewellery stands, trays, graphical laundry baskets, phone covers, vases, cake platters, stationary organisers, ceramic cups and platters, bar accessories, cushion covers…
