We all get interior designers to look sophisticated but now, look at it from an artistic eye.
Interior designing is not just a way to improve the look of a home or workplace, but it is an art form as well as it requires creativity and knowledge of aesthetics. Sarabjit Singh, an architectural designer, Villa Ortiga Design, and a traveller by heart, focuses on combining his passion and expertise together to reflect the assorted cultures of the world.
Sarabjit who strongly believes that it is time for the Indian interior design industry to truly embrace a more global movement of design and aesthetics shares his thoughts on what makes interior designing an art form and talks about global trends.
Sarabjit believes that trends are inspired by a lot of things architectural wise such as passion, graphics, technology, season, and nature. He adds, “If we predict the overall global trend, it might be difficult but, I can tell you that the trend is a very mixed match, things that are mix together and offers vintage, modern and top quality.”
He continues, “The colours you use in different seasons, for instance, if you are in warm country, then you use colours which are cooling and not so dark, and if you are in a cold country, you use colours and lightening that allow you to have a darker tone. There is a whole variety of concepts trends that are laid and been influenced on these days.”
On asking what he means by the concept in interior designing, to which he replies, “it is our role as a creative people and as designers to build an idea through a concept. The concept can be quite general, or can be quite mixed with culture, or can be inspired by something.” He further points out, “It also depends in which city you live in for example if you live in Tokyo, it will be preferable to use digitalised finishing because it is a very futuristic city, but if we are doing any project in city like Delhi we can use material which is more finished and gives us sleeker, neater and modern look. ”
According to Sarabjit concept can be inspired by travel, the evolution of the human species, or colour. While modern and international culture has become common, so to be unique, Sarabjit advises, “one must go to the offbeat track and look for things that are local and has some heritage value, has been there for some years, it will give you altogether a different experience.”
Sarabjit feels that people nowadays think interior designing as a problem-solving technique. “It is an art form, it is everywhere whether you go to plane, shop or home or even a barbershop. It offers some depth and space that have some artistic quality. You get colours, experience and some history through it,” he concludes.
