In our patriarchal society, it is uncommon to find women in management-level positions let alone women-led organizations. Opportunities were denied to give them a chance for decades and centuries. But since the last decade, things are drastically changing. Firstly, there was the entry of women in organizations at top ranks and important positions. There is a big contribution to the feminism movement in India and worldwide. Women are speaking of “Equal Work, Equal Pay” which is commendable. There have been several initiatives and opportunities to bring in gender equality literally in all spheres and sectors by Government, Civil Societies and Private Players. Even our Prime Minister has recently emphasized on moving from “Women Development” to “Women-Led Development”.

When asked what inspires her?
Nature, it’s myriad colours and forms never fail to inspire me. Travel also brings in copious ideas. A very small town/city also has its own details, colours and language which if well interpreted could lead to an interior analogue of the exterior world. Design cannot have a standard protocol. Hence it should always evolve keeping in mind the functionality and comfort for the end-user.
Work process at Space Karma:
We at Space Karma work on a simple three stage process, which includes
The dream is defined after learning about the client’s goals, requirements, and preferences. The latter part of this stage includes the establishment of project scope, budget, and timeline.
