Out Of The Box
Dabbling in the world of product design, it was a challenge to work with the core design and marketing teams to bring back memories of the original Jawa motorycle, a vintage classic, loved by many for it’s unique visual styling and rugged appeal. The Jawa was being re- imagined to fit into today’s contemporary lifestyle. Visits to the factory and understanding the motorbike, the passion, the rider and it’s most loved features was an essential foundation to the process. Thereafter, the thoughts progressed to include small ideas connecting vintage memories and touchpoints to the upgraded Jawa and communicating the same in colours, textures and metallic embellishments to the logo forming a new vocabulary for the iconic Jawa.

Out Of The Box
Elephant Parade took place in Mumbai, India, in March 2018 as a public art event to generate vital funds to secure 101 elephant corridors across India for the endangered Asian elephant. 101 artists, designers and architects were invited to participate towards a planned preview event in Jaipur at the Albert Museum in Jaipur. Launched finally at the Gateway of India, Mumbai, Arianna was conceived to visually interpret the ancient Indian parable “ The Blind Men and the Elephant “ all over the elephant in the story telling style of John Godfrey Saxe, the poet and the artist Ayesha Broacha. Each section of the baby elephant told individual stories, misunderstood by the blind men, which became a 3 dimensional representation of a reality, where an individual truth may be partially true but not the ultimate truth.

BREACH CANDY CHILDREN'S PARK
Spread over 4 acres along the seaside in Breach Candy, Mumbai, The Harish Mahindra Park was resurrected during the pandemic. It brings joy to the lives of children, and enables them to enjoy the outdoors, and explore nature in their own neighbourhood. The beautiful large trees provide shelter, and special areas are envisioned to accommodate play for all age groups on swings, seesaws, and in sandcastles. The children can scale heights on the rope pyramid climbers, find their balance on sway alleys, explore a jungle trail, and play among the animals and scary sharks. An exciting experience for children with limited outdoor spaces. A medicinal garden helps the children learn about and recognize various herbs and plants, used for everyday immunity and wellbeing. As quoted by Albert Einstein “Play is the highest form of research.”
