Payal Pratap

Shop/2013

Established designer Payal Pratap Singh commissioned the studio to create a retail space. The partnership between designer and Studio was built on a commitment to simplicity and quality. Payal Pratap Singh is a designer known for her use of vibrant color on simple garments. Prioritizing this, with a desire to give clients a realistic idea of how these colors would look against their natural skin tone, the Studio created a retail space that played with diffused lighting solutions, designed to mimic natural daylight. The use of locally available materials like mango wood and terracotta tiles also gave the space a simple, courtyard-feel. The end result is a space that transcends commercial transactions; the store has become a place where people like to linger.
