India Mahdavi architecture and design , Principal
Architect and designer, India Mahdavi is based in Paris.
She graduated in architecture (DPLG - Paris), industrial design (Copper Union, NYC), graphic design (School of Visual Arts, NYC) and furniture design (Parson’s NYC).
Her studio, created in 2000, is known for the diversity of its international projects which explore the fields of architecture, interior design, scenography, furniture and object design.
Settled on one single street in Paris, rue Las Cases, India Mahdavi has created a very unique environment combining a modern sense of comfort and elegance with color and humour. A cross-cultured art de vivre.
Her first showroom at 3 rue Las Cases which opened in 2003, focuses on a high end collection of furniture, produced exclusively in France. Designed for her interior design projects, these pieces now constitute a unique body of work which share the same values: a sophisticated balance between strong graphics and a glamorous signature.
19 rue Las Cases, India Mahdavi’s second showroom, opened in December 2011, focuses on small objects, a radical change of scale. These new pieces, which India also designs and uses for her interior design projects, are now displayed in this fresh and creative hide-away. The ‘petits objets’ boutique is a free spirited and lighthearted playground that echoes and complements the furniture showroom.
Polyglotte & poychrome, India Mahdavi has become an exclusive brand, offering a complete philosophy, based on a special vocabulary: high end, joyful, nomadic, chic, elegant, ‘art de vivre’, a certain way of life.
