The major elements that immediately catch the eye when talking about India Mahdavi ’s signature style are the eclectic vibes pervading her projects. Additionally, the contrast of colors recreating the essence of her vision and creating a polychromatic look into her designer mind. India’s reign is Rue Las Cases, in Paris’ Seventh Arrondissement, where she has managed to recreate her fantasy world. Shapes and colors that bring life to her specific essential style.
The Gallery at Sketch – London
Likewise the concept behind India’s Mahdavi interior design creations, it is all about creating overwhelming ambiances in which everyone can feel surrounded by a particular vibe. As well as strictly connected with the feeling she wants to convey. The uses of a specific exuberant color or a bold pattern are favorite tools to send a personal message. Likewise, it can’t possibly be a surprise if one of the most Instagrammed restaurants in London is a creation of her. Like The Gallery at Sketch London: the specific shade of pink – bubble-gum pink for many, dusty pink for others – that she describes as a “pink that is like the essence of pink.”
Ladurée Quai Des Bergues – Geneva
“To conceive a space, I listen to it, I analyze its constraints, its needs, and its context. This is how my studio functions; the human scale prevails. I often compare places to faces.”
A multicultural dimension leads the designer toward a typical use of great contrast. India Mahdavi born in Tehran, came to Europe as a kid, moving from country to country. Later, she studied at Paris’s École des Beaux-Arts and New York’s School of Visual Arts and Parsons, deciding to reside in Paris to work as artistic director for Christian Liaigre. Until India Mahdavi opened her studio in 1999 and her showroom four years later.
Chez Nina – Milano
Her own life shaped her stylistic vision of divergence, like connecting a masculine setting with a more feminine shade. The nomadic point of view translates itself in a bold and energetic atmosphere, capable of conveying each time a particular message that resonates in every room she has given life to.
Le Germain – Paris
From designer’s pop collection with Bisazza to her Petit Objets collection opened in 2011, without forgetting her iconic projects. Such as the multiple ones for Ladurée in Tokyo, Los Angeles, and Geneva; Le Germain, Paris; the Hôtel du Cloître, Arles, and Chez Nina in Milan, Paris-based designer India Mahdavi has managed to bring her powerful and colorful concept into the world.
