let there be (good) light

I’m a sensitive guy. Especially when it comes to light. When I first moved to India to work for AD, I had a dubious reputation for wearing sunglasses in my cabin. No, the Condé Nast dream had not gone to my head and I definitely wasn’t trying to be the Anna Wintour of Ballard Estate. The problem was that I just couldn’t handle the overbearing, way-too-bright, and pristinely white strip light oppressing me from above. It crippled me. It was so unlike my previous office, where I was bathed in natural light sitting next to a 12-foot-tall window overlooking Place Vendôme, that I needed those sunglasses just to stay sane. Things had to change and they did. I moved to a sunlit cabin and, for late nights in the office,…

INGO MAURER designer Since 1966, German industrial designer Ingo Maurer has been making magic with lights. For ‘AD x Ingo Maurer’ (pg 179), the designer revisited his studio’s old work and shared a design that never saw the light of day. “The collaboration made me look at some ideas that weren’t realized, which is something I don't do often. I'm filled with a mix of regret and new energy to get them accomplished.” DIVYA THAKUR designer Divya Thakur is the founder of product design studio Design Temple. Years of designing, curating and writing have made her a critical force in shaping tastes and trends. For ‘AD x Divya Thakur’ (pg 185), she gave the traditional rangoli a contemporary makeover. “The possibilities of playing with geometrical forms are endless and exciting! We’re delighted to have collaborated…

a new design language

Today, the lives of people entail an interesting mix of multitasking, flexibility and above all, the freedom of living. They have new habits, new hobbies and new preferences. They are big on creating experiences, thrive on entertainment and depend on technology 24/7. They look for things that make their lives easier, unique and more enjoyable. Catering to this evolving lifestyle is Godrej Script—a new perspective on furniture design. After all, the way you live is defined by the space you live in. So the question remains—is your space a true reflection of you? Does your home double up as an interactive work place for your freelance assignments? Does your living room offer the comfort level you seek? Does your sofa allow you to watch movies lying sideways, for your weekend binge?…

gateway to art

Geographically, the distance between Walkeshwar Road and Colaba is a reasonable nine kilometres. Atmospherically? They couldn’t be further apart. The residential pocket in Malabar Hill is quiet; Mumbai’s top tourist destination is bustling. “You don’t just happen to be on Walkeshwar Road; it’s out of the way,” explains Priya Jhaveri, who co-founded Jhaveri Contemporary with her sister Amrita eight years ago. Though its address never really stopped patrons of the art gallery from making the trek, better connectivity is one of the major reasons the co-founders decided to relocate to Colaba. Having turned the final page on the Walkeshwar Road chapter, the sisters consider this the next phase of their “accidental art gallery”. Priya says, “It started as a little space where we thought, rather than just having artworks to…

hey, miss t

The two-storey bungalow that housed Busaba—an iconic Colaba establishment in its own right—now plays host to the very chic Miss T. Gauri Devidayal and Jay Yousef’s second restaurant finds itself in good company; the impressive facade of The Taj Mahal Palace & Tower is visible as you walk through its sliding doors. But once you’re inside, Mumbai melts away and you’re transported to Miss T’s world—a new South East Asian restaurant that moonlights as a cocktail bar. DREAM TEAM Miss T is the result of a powerhouse collaboration between Devidayal and Yousef’s Food Matters India, and the Woodside boys’ (Sumit Gambhir, Abhishek Honawar and Pankil Shah) Neighbourhood Hospitality. Between the five of them, they run some of the city’s best-known restaurants, including Woodside Inn, The Table, The Pantry and pop-up space Magazine…

avant garde

The David Gill Gallery in London can be likened to an interactive art installation, not unlike those that have been displayed within its halls over the last 30 years. After all, it has consistently drawn viewers in, invited participation and, most importantly, challenged perceptions. The eponymous gallerist’s life-changing year in Paris in the 1970s initiated his interest in curation and all things beautiful, leading him to the work of designers who were contemporizing the world of decorative arts at the time—like Zaha Hadid and Mattia Bonetti. They were dabbling in ‘design art’—furniture and objects that were not just functional but inherently collectable, had limited production runs, and were tailored to the tastes of a new generation—before the term was coined in 1999 by auctioneer Alexander Payne. Right from when it opened…
