Arjun Kamath, Bangalore
Interior Design / Decor & Styling
the job in a nutshell
To design and furnish a picture perfect office
With the glass door and blinds open, the open-plan format becomes a space for workshops, talks, and events. When drawn, the partition creates a cosy meeting area.
Cole & Son’s floral wallpaper and a collection of photographs on a blue wall brighten up the entrance. On this side of the partition are fixed workstations, overhead storage, a pantry, and a restroom. Adding colour and energy to the private meeting area are the same floral wallpaper and a floor-to-ceiling mirror cladded over columns behind the photographer’s desk. Large windows complement the distressed mirror, both opening up and bathing the space in natural light.
An Asian Paints concrete wall embedded with brass designs runs along one side of the space, connecting the shared work area to the private one. The revamped workspace perfectly embodies Arjun’s photography practice. It provides ample room for Arjun’s many collaborators (models, camera crew, and hair and makeup artists, to name a few) to come together and play.
Studio Slip leaves no detail to chance. Plants, jars, door handles, light fixtures, switchboards, and mugs, to name a few details, all balance and enliven the workspace. A combination of colours and textures gives the space a professional look and a warm feel.
This 2021 workspace redesign is Studio Slip’s second project with visual storyteller Arjun Kamath. The first was The Anxiety Series, completed in 2019. This photography project explored anxiety in eight staged scenes of distress featuring fictional characters. Set in different Bangalore locales, the series shed light on the many faces of anxiety, evoking empathy in the viewer. Bollywood star Shweta Tripathi appeared in this project, which went on to win a Tokyo International Foto Award (2020) and receive ‘Remarkable Artwork’ and ‘Honourable Mention’ at the Sienna International Photo Awards (2021).
