hello!

I'm from Mumbai, India and graduated from the School of The Art Institute of Chicago with an emphasis in Designed Objects in May 2016. 

As a designer I create objects that encourage playfulness through sensory stimulation and open-ended physical interactions. My design belongs in everyday life and desires to be touched, manipulated, and interacted with. I believe in designing interactive objects that are neutral to gender, and handedness.

I am interested in cross-cultural ideas of childhood, home, and play. In the past I worked with poor urban toddlers in a mobile crèche in Mumbai to research low-cost, stimulating play materials and further extended this research in Tanzania. I also had the opportunity to exhibit my work in Milan Design Week 2016, Toronto Design Offsite 2016, WantedDesign 2016, and Neocon 2016.

If you like my work and want to hire me/collaborate/say hi, then please do message! Don't be shy!
