Orion Nebula


It is a diffused mood lamp which creates a celestial night sky feel with its Break-resistant Poly-carbonate shell and embedded LED light.
The special effect is created due to multiple refraction of light though the cut-glass style of surface texture embossed over the multicolored lamp shades.

Mr.Chair - 'Active' Electrostatic Chair

A curious four legged piece of 'active' electrostatic furniture for kids and adults who hate to grow up!

The 3 attributes I choose to demonstrate were the imagination of a painter, curiosity of a scientist and the enigma of a magician. All of which were found to be as aspirations when asked to children about their future professions.

Sweet Heart - Lover's Chair



Love blooms when two hearts meet. A chair for two...a desire so honest... to be expressed un-selfconsciously.
Sweet Heart is the manifestation of my imagination of a piece of furniture that makes a poetic connection between design and simple gestures in human relationships – like caressing your loved one. A couple can sit together, on top of each others lap. Adjust to a comfortable seat height and lock – unlock the tilt.
The chair’s silhouette just happens to be indicative of the heart shape, the most common and most widely recognized symbol of love.

The chair has been prototyped by my loving wife/co-designer Suhasini Paul.

Clip wins Red Dot Award : Design Concept 2010



Clip is an attempt to re-define a mundane object to breathe in fresh thoughts in the field of design for mass manufacturing: evoking ecological awareness and accountability. Realizing today’s and foreseeing tomorrow’s scenario, it was felt that howsoever people talk about eco-sensitivity, consumption of plastic house-wares would still be quite large enough to deplete our natural resources. One way to reduce consumption is to facilitate prolonged life of the same product. Improved longevity of Clip confronts the challenges of waste reduction and supports a productive economy by conserving the embodied energy that was originally used to manufacture it.
