“Indian design needs to advance at a faster pace” feels Ketan Sheth
“Indian design needs to advance at a faster pace, to constantly evolve in tune with global demands and expectations. One must deﬁne intentions, explore options and eventually create compositions that can take design to a new level. This can result in judgments that create innovations and implement, promote and nurture concepts that can build a foundation of good and deep design.”
‘Interior Designing as a separate specialized design discipline, is a relatively more attractive ﬁeld in India. Today, Interior design in India has come a long way. It has gained autonomy from Architecture and is not just reduced to decoration and furnishings anymore”. Ketan R Sheth, MD & Principal Designer – Goldmine Project Consultant Pvt.
