Gunjan Gupta, who has earned several diplomas and a prestigious British award, is redefining the world of interior design from her home in New Delhi.
In her part of the world, the definition of design is based on a different set of wants, needs, and perspectives. This describes the experience of Gunjan Gupta, an Indian woman who founded Studio Wrap Art & Design in New Delhi after earning a master’s degree in furniture design from Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London and winning the prestigious British Council’s Young Creative Entrepreneur Award.
The world of design redefined by Gunjan Gupta
She now delivers high-quality craftsmanship while working to promote Indian products. Her ultimate goal is for Indian products to gain a reputation for luxury on the international stage. Gunjan Gupta draws on her traditional savoir-faire to approach her work from a different perspective. For example, she starts a project with the understanding that the structure of a chair is not just a simple piece of furniture, but the remnants of a colonial past.
All the treasures of India
Gunjan describes her style as a tongue-in-cheek blend of ancestral shapes and rituals. Her iconic, handmade pieces are modern constructions made from natural materials like wood, stone, terracotta, and more valuable elements such as silverleaf and goldleaf, resulting in a contrasting blend of India’s basic and precious materials.
