This practice-based in Ahmedabad, founded by Ar. Veeram Shah- Design ni Dukaan- is literally a shop of Design! A fabulous treasure of Design ideas, electrifying design projects, Art, Architecture, Furniture, Accessories and whatnot! His practice focuses on the concept of 'design' in totality and without distinction. With a very informal structure of the practice that collaborates with artists and thinkers of different fields, they try their hands at different scales of designs ranging from architecture to furniture to jewellery. His other ventures where he is a co-founder are a little more formal. POD- Pieces of Desire is an award-winning Furniture design label that has amazing and elegant collections with consideration to aesthetics, craftsmanship and affordability, perfectly synced together. DOTTO- Objects of Curiosity, his another venture where he is a co-founder works on a unique design language with objects that seamlessly blends intangible ideas into functional products.
