I have always admired the work and vision of this exceptional company. Together, I hope to offer new dimensions in creativity to the global market. New India is a rich mother lode of style, structure and material and the world is now ready to explore these intricately. Design to me is a feeling and an emotion and when all such energies align, we will, hopefully, reach heights of intensity and balance.”
