Meet Our Founding Partners
A subtle breeze sets a “FIRKI” into motion – transforming its coloured blades, a poetic act that brings out a smile. Simple interventions with a large impact is what we look forward to deliver in a project. We rely a lot on intuitive design and try to construct a collage of forms and spaces that is dynamic, aspiring and meaningful throughout. While the studio tends to draw inspiration from simplistic observations and day-to-day objects/events, every project is a result of complex collaborative processes not necessarily bound by a predetermined style.
Started as an Illustration studio called ‘Firki ‘in 2011, the firm Firki Studio was founded in 2014 by Vasanth and Sakshi to delve into the field of design and architecture and was later joined by Shiv as Design Head and Partner. A young team of thinkers, focusing to create designs and memories that are everlasting, are in a journey to understand and explore the term-“modern Indian aesthetic”.
