Unbottling ideas

201410Nishi-Chauhan01Independent design entrepreneur Nishi Chauhan is happiest when she’s working with her hands!
Nishi feels driven with the idea of finding beauty and joy in simple objects of daily use:

Rather than focusing on a ‘signature style’ Nishi prefers to let need, and the making, shape the esthetic. Her Animal Farm and Dunk were awarded Red Dot Award 2014, Best of the Best, at the recently held Red Dot Design Award ceremony in Singapore.
