A small luxury studio apartment space was tastefully decorated using just two antique rugs, one from Persia and one from the Caucasian region. The handwoven rugs made for self-use over a hundred years ago added identity to the space and transformed it into a stimulating living area.
To infuse identity and character into a small standard common living space.
The client approached us to to source an artwork for a small studio apartment in Mumbai. The brief was initially vague but after a few discussions we converged on the requirement that the artwork selected would infuse character and a unique identity into an otherwise plain space. Several rounds of presentations of category options, shortlisting and presentation of individual artworks resulted in a very satisfying selection of two outstanding rugs. Technical execution followed and a year later, these remain the soulful attraction of the home-museum space.
1) The project was carried out across 2 countries and 2 time zones. 2) The initial discussions were conducted remotely only online through video calls. 3) The structured stages of the process of briefing, initial proposal, category shortlisting, technical discussions, artwork shortlisting, selection & finalisation led to a successful implementation.

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
