This interior for a firm supplying embroidery and leatherwork to European haute couture designers is housed in one bay of an industrial estate. The minimal aesthetic of this office with its clean surfaces and recessed lighting has now become popular and common-place. This is however one of the very early projects of this genre in the country.
The work-spaces are defined by low-height storage partitions to maintain the oneness of the tall space. The essential palette of colours is derived from earthy Indian reference; these are applied as floating planes, which exaggerate the sense of layering of the actual planes. Coloured glass chips embedded in the white terrazzo of the floor ricochet these colours.
