Testimonial

"It was one of life's most wonderful coincidences when I heard about Pavitra through a relative of mine. I thought furnishing an entire new house would be chaotic and a headache to execute, but working with Pavitra made it not only easy as a breeze but exciting as well. Not many designers would take a client's personal taste into consideration when planning a space, luckily I ended up with someone who does. I've met many interior designers but Pavitra's name always comes first to mind when friends or family ask me for a recommendation."

CROSBY STREET HOTEL

If you have wondered about my sudden disappearance from my Facebook page and my blog it has been for good reason. I have been out and about exploring the mean streets of New York City. A rather sudden and un-planned vacation, which is how most of my vacations take place. Though New York has an overabundance of museums, parks, historic sites to visit, I found solace walking the streets and I have walked for hours. The streets, I felt was where the core of the energy emerged from and it spiraled through every path, around every buildings into the fabulous open sky. It is the energy that makes this city unlike any other. A mélange of crazy people crammed the streets of times square, every color, shape and size, each bringing his own unique energy, but yet co-existing with the other.

Bringing my focus back on interiors, I would like to feature the Crosby Street Hotel a boutique hotel located on 79, Crosby street. This is a charming cozy boutique hotel, simple interiors but with an eclectic mix of fascinating items.

The streets of New York City have been mesmerizing they beckon me and it is hard to stay away for too long. I hope you have enjoyed this post… see you next week with yet another feature… till then “Stay Funky”

TILE+LIGHT

I have certainly missed writing these past few weeks and I hope you have missed me too! Honestly I have been swamped with work (which is a great thing so no complains), and did not want to fill my pages with un-inspiring content. So here I am back with another cool product and inspired to write about it.

Kano ceramic tile co. has collaborated with award winning Korean Designer Hyomi Kim and created Tile + Light. It is the integration of Led lights into ceramic tiles. They have 4 different modules to choose from to customize your designs. I think the tiles are best used for wayfinding and lighting stairs or stairwells.  Have a look at the examples below…

 

I hope you thought this product was cool too! Till next time... Stay Funky!

DESign Days Dubai, 2013- Feat. Assorted Artists

I would like to round up my tour of Design days Dubai, with some assorted interesting art and furniture pieces from varied designers. 

I was very proud to witness the works of local artists in Dubai, FN Gallery is the creative hub for artists and designers based here. 

Truly funky pieces, the metal chair with laser cut skull and calligraphy is my favourite. 

Moissonnier by Khalid Shafar

Khalid Shafar is a designer who creates pieces that tell a story. Here he has transformed the Moissonnier chest into a scuptural piece. It tells a story of two legendary horses that acheived victory during the Dubai world cup and left behind great memories, but tragically died for different reasons. This piece is known as the "Headless Horses" 

What i appreciate about the piece is how Moissonnier has taken the artists vision and created an imppecable work of art. It embodies the graceful but powerful nature of the horse.

 

I hope you have enjoyed reading the posts about Design Days in Dubai. I will be off looking for new material to write about and keep you and me inspired....till then "Stay Funky"

Design Days Dubai, 2013- Feat. HB INDUSTRIAL DESIGNS

This one is a truly cool find. Artist and photographer Heike Buelau uses her original industrial photographs to create the industrial themed wall paper. 

The wall paper has a distinctive and complex pattern adding dimension and depth to a bland wall. The applications could be in commercial as well as residential interiors.

I found these patterns to have a very masculine quality, would look hot in a bachelor pad!... Till next time...... "Stay Funky" darlings...

Design Days Dubai, 2013- Feat. Analogia Project

Observing the Analogia Project installation at Design Days Dubai literally felt like I had walked into an artist’s sketchbook, a drawing had taken life and I could interact with it and move around it. This installation definitely grasped every passerby’s attention! The lines floated in space in perfect harmony and proportion, mimicked an artists sketch impeccably.

 

"Analogia project is a fictional interpretation of design that integrates a real space with unreal entities exploring the consequential relationship between them. The objects are sketched in the air by using black wool on a (digitally designed) transparent threads web, creating an imaginary world that question our granted familiarity with physical space.

The aim is to explore new visual semiotic languages through an interpretation of digital craftsmanship."
