Welcome! The Project Index is an archive of the vari0.us projects I've been involved in.
My ultimate goal is to share detailed
case studies for each project,
although some links may still be locked
or a work in progress.
If you're here to explore my projects and get to
know me better,
I recommend using the experiments filter ❤️.
Product Design Journey
Our process towards product design expresses values, beliefs, and learnings through objects in space or accessorized on the human body. They are functional and ornamental; while simultaneously celebrating materials, experiences, identities & processes of digital and physical fabrication. With an obsession for modular systems, every project is approached in sections that come together to create a collective of multiple variables. Often these objects are also expressed as exaggerated realities of hyper-functional products, that serve unexpected functions.
Identity Design Journey
Our approach to creating brand identities falls beyond visuals and logos. We focus on creating mini universes with their characters, variables, rules, and feelings. We express this through various mediums such as print media, packaging experiences, web experiences, and spatial experiences that tie the brand's identity together. Our projects span in between Engineering, Technology, design-based services (BtoB, BtoG companies), cosmetic, apparel, hospitality, cannabis, and smoking paraphernalia brands (BtoC, DtoC).
To Observe/To Feel/To Celebrate/To Learn/To Flow/To Be and documented through public art installations, illustrations, writings, research papers, print media, objects, sounds, and code. The body of work also consists of academic projects and collaborative initiatives for social impact.
Spatial Design Journey
Our approach to designing spatial experiences strives to find a perfect fusion between Data-driven Computational Design and the labor-intensive construction industry in India. We use technology + digital fabrication practices to complement the analog methods of craft and explore various material processes. The documentation spans in between public spaces, hospitality, retail, commercial, events, educational and residential spaces. Includes work with studio 823 (2016-2017), studio tessera, and The Busride design studio (2018-2019).
