The interior design for Sanjyt Syngh

Dear Sanjyt , How is the creative idea behind the project born?

I believe in writing stories based on client briefs. I don’t repeat concepts and details. Once a space has been designed, there isn’t another one which will have the same elements.
I don’t label myself a designer. I am more of an interpreter. I always try and put people who own the space in the environment and think how they would feel. A space should always reflect the style of the inhabitants.

How do you prepare for project development?

We aim to detail every millimeter before the project goes on the floor. It creates a solid base work for the project and also lessens the chances of unnecessary surprises showing up later.

What are the aspects that most affect your choices? The space? The personality of the customer?

We’ve heard a lot about androgyny in fashion but not as much in interiors. That’s one rule I follow while designing a space. A space shouldn’t be gender specific unless it has specific needs. Design to me is very personal. It’s an expression of your taste. And if it doesn’t create conversations, it’s not design. That doesn’t necessarily mean it should be avant-garde. It must have a story. A lot of design is story-telling. But the story also needs to be practical. Beauty lies in details. It’s always that extra mile that gives me satisfaction.

I believe in two cardinal rules:

Go Big or Go Home.

Oh wait! Aren’t we already home? So, let’s just go big.
I’ve always felt that your home should be an extension of your space or your style. If you love Glam, go for Glam. Embrace grandeur. It is something I have always believed even before Covid-19. And as we settle into the new normal it has become increasingly important. 

Art is necessary.
What is a space without art? Art is story-telling. It doesn’t necessarily have to harmonize with the surroundings.
I say, take risks, mix eras. Not only does art bring life to a room but it also adds colour and inspiration. It builds a confident living environment.

How does the research of suppliers take place? What are the fundamental characteristics they must have?

This is very project centric. We choose our suppliers based on the design language of the project.

What is the lighting role in your project? When do you choose the light?

Without doubt lighting is one of the key elements in every space I design. Infact, It is the hero. I choose lighting very early on in the design process.

What kind of relationship do you have with your suppliers? Do you actively involve them in the process? If so, to what extent?

I suggest the suppliers should answer the first part of this question. Lol! On a serious note it is important to maintain a healthy relationship with the suppliers. They are an important part of any and every project. It is extremely important to involve them in the process. They know their products better than anyone. I feel it is important to trust them. We share a design brief and floor plans with our suppliers and wait for them to revert with the right products. I am known to make them work hard till I don’t find the right product.

If you were to share advice with your colleagues about lighting décor, what would you suggest?

Decorative lighting is an integral part of any space and in most cases, it is an afterthought. I would suggest to choose your lighting while designing the space. Not only it helps you in budgeting the space but also helps you balance design.

If you were to share advice with final customer, what would you suggest to weigh up for their purchases?

I insist on finalising budgets before we start the project. It helps us to distribute it evenly doing justice to the design of the space. I insist on keeping sufficient budget for lighting and art.

Why did you choose Masiero?

I remember seeing the Nappe’s at Salone in 2019 and I immediately fell in love with them. I know I wanted to make them the hero of this large project I was working on. I didn’t want to use them independently as I believe in the power of multiples.
