Young Guns of De­sign

From high end in­te­ri­ors to cus­tom­ized fur­ni­ture and pop-up art, the young gen­er­a­tion of de­sign­ers are start­ing some­thing new and leav­ing their mark. Sapna Sri­vas­tava spoke to two such young de­sign en­trepreneurs.

It is usu­ally said that sec­ond gen­er­a­tion busi­ness per­sons don’t have to work that hard or in this age of in­for­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy and in­ter­net, es­tab­lish­ing a startup is not a la­bo­ri­ous process any­more. How­ever, in the field of de­sign, where age is equated with ex­pe­ri­ence and bet­ter de­sign knowl­edge, es­tab­lish­ing them­selves has been quite a chal­lenge for th­ese young de­sign­ers. They have not only proved them­selves but have also cre­ated their own niche in the world of art & ar­chi­tec­ture. Sarah Mo­hamedi Sham is the fourth gen­er­a­tion en­tre­pre­neur, to take for­ward the heritage of Es­sajees with her in­te­rior de­sign bou­tique firm Es­sajees Ate­lier founded in 2014. On the other hand, Ar­jun Thomas and Am­rita Thomas Modi, af­ter be­ing in the in­te­rior de­sign space for a cou­ple of years, re­al­ized that it was next to im­pos­si­ble for a cus­tomers to cus­tom­ize a sofa set. This was the be­gin­ning of set­ting up ‘Cre­ate your Couch’.
