SN: I belong to a family which has a Artist background. My ancestors used to design coats of Jardosi work for all kings.

FS: Can you tell us more about your company / design studio?
SN: The design studio aims at giving the utmost attention to personal style and independence of expressions which are driving forces in designing. Beautiful, self- expressive homes makes one feel alive when one comes home after a long working day. We take pleasure in creating such healthy, comfortable and environmentally sensitive spaces.

FS: What is "design" for you?
SN: To me interior design at its best, is a synthesis of its form and function. Attention to detail is what distinguishes a quality design project. Detail doesn't only mean adding, it's also about knowing when to edit.

FS: What kinds of works do you like designing most?
SN: Architectural concepts, Residential, Commercial, Hospitality, or almost anything what is possible to design

FS: What is your most favorite design, could you please tell more about it?
SN: The project that won me a Silver A' Design Award is my most favorite design (Project Name: Shadow house). More than any other project, this one required thorough study about sunlight. Direct sunlight is harsh for the eyesight and hence the lattice work, trapezoid panels, and curtains were used in such a way that it created shadows whole day until the sun sets down. The furniture was thought of & designed in different angles that it gave a feel like Origami art. Natural Greenwall was done in the dining area, it improves air quality and energy levels. It creates a good atmosphere.

FS: What was the first thing you designed for a company?
SN: Residence

FS: What is your favorite material / platform / technology?
SN: Line Work

SN: When i am close to nature.

FS: Which aspects of a design do you focus more during designing?
SN: Clean and clear line work with conceptualized design. Clear circulation, maximum natural light to the spaces, while giving it an open look.

FS: What kind of emotions do you feel when you design?
SN: I feel refreshed. I completely involve myself in designing any project.

FS: What kind of emotions do you feel when your designs are realized?
SN: On top of the world!

FS: What makes a design successful?

FS: From your point of view, what are the responsibilities of a designer for society and environment?
SN: It is to provide innovative design with a flexible environment, inspirational spaces with clear circulation.

FS: How do you think the "design field" is evolving? What is the future of design?
SN: It appplies across all projects, no matter the budget, whether big or small. We first find out from our clients, as each client is unique and individual, what their current and expected needs and philosophy are, and then they work with the clients to create their personalized design. We create style of living that provides a flexible environment of flowing, well, lit, inspirational spaces that can transform the way you live. Future of design is too bright as long as professionals are involved in it.
