What is the core brand idea?

‘New Living’ relates to new practices or ways of living, that is an answer to the challenges and aspirations of contemporary living. It denotes a progressive and optimistic approach to design for everyday activities and interactions within the home.

“Design” denotes the design-led approach of the brand, cuing both the purpose-built capability, and higher aesthetic quotient and craftsmanship of the brand. Apart from a unique look and feel, a higher aesthetic appealing tonality, Script is also positioned as a brand that supports new living. Script is a solution-based furniture that will not only support new activities but also new ways of exercising certain activities. It will be based on ecosystems that will define people’s lifestyles. Script will address categories like rugs, furnishing, soft linen, pillow, pillow covers, lamps, kitchen wares, bar ware, etc. It is going to be a holistic solution. All the products are going to complement each other so that they are not showcased in isolation.

Whom is the furniture designed for?

Script is targeted towards consumers who enjoy contemporary living. These consumers chart their own path and are completely independent from what mainstream wants them to think.

Why the same Script?

The thought behind this is the ability to script or create, to choreograph or to compose your activities and experiences within the home space.

What are the fabrics used to curate the collection?

We do not have a specific type or genre of fabric. The objective is to continuously innovate and create better and intelligent designs for our consumers who aspire a finer lifestyle.

How does Script remove the issue of shrunken urban spaces this issue while maintaining the aesthetics of the space?

Script products are designed in a way that they consume less space by using them is a multi functional way, while elevating the aesthetic quotient of the surrounding. For example our sofa named Let Harbor site literally is your anchor, as its comfortable seating remains comfortable no matter how long you spend time on it. With a headrest on either side, it not only permits but also encourages you to lie sideways, with your legs draped over the armrests.

The Sinewy Dining Table extends from a four seater to a six seater, ensuring you always have room for more-more dinner guests, more projects and more time together!

There is a bed that makes work from home a joyful experience without getting out of bed as Lagoon’s many features (from a large storage bench to a laptop tray to the tiny clothes peg) ensure everything you need is at arm’s length.

 Encourage curiosity:

-> The store is designed such that is reveals just enough to generate the intrigue        without revealing everything about the store.

-> Also the elements used through out the store are so unique that there’s always the need to know more about the same – be it the materials used or design itself. 

The Brass story:

-> Godrej has a rich heritage in the brass, right from the early days of the locks and continuing with this tradition brass has been used subtly through the store.

-> The Terrazzo floors in the store are made by pouring concrete mixed with the brass dust and caps  which was but the dust from the locks division.

-> The brass story continues in the little brass strips used in the racking fixtures or the grommets in the ground.

Processed with VSCO with e3 preset

Empower and Enrich:

-> The store is very intuitive to go through and helps spend a lot of time discovering the products very simply.

-> Right from the wide ramp that can be stretched for the people who have difficulty in using the staircase to the displays in the store using simple fixtures that are able to both house various categories and create visual partitions through the store the design thinking makes the store journey both easy yet keeps consumer engaged as the products reveal themselves around the corner.

*It has very nice customisable fixture system, which is very versatile to accommodate any type of category to be display.

Processed with VSCO with e3 preset

The Brand Immersion area:

-> The ground floor of the store is dedicated to explaining the brand philosophy.

-> The exhibit has the prototypes of the furniture with their back stories.

-> It is a interactive area which talks about the DNA of the brand, the design thinking that goes behind the brand, showcasing how the designers think, materials designers use. It’s the introduction to the world of script.

B4DF43F4-50B7-4FA9-B056-695B31883282
The Designer – Vaishnavipratima

Goa welcomed Mumbai’s popular interiors design store- Vaishnavipratima on 14 September 2018. Located in the heart of North Goa; a ninety year old Portuguese influenced four thousand sq.ft. spacious Goan villa is now home to the gorgeous studio. Specializing in Indianized artifacts, furniture, interior design and for the first time- fashion by Prama and Bhavaa  jewellery; the studio is named after its founder- Vaishnavipratima (popular interior designer and artist). It first opened in Mumbai in June 2016 and has ever since been known for its exclusive customized furniture and design for Indian homes.

The collection and style of the second Vaishnavipratima- Signature Collection is more suited to Goan houses and its people as it simultaneously retains its design sensibility of celebrating Indian art. Unlike its Mumbai flagship; outdoor furniture, designer beds, dining tables, premium designer wear by Prama (chanderi sarees and Indo-western outfits by Pratima Pandey) and Bhavaa jewellery  comprising of semiprecious gemstone collections are notable additions to the Goan store. Both Prama and Bhavaa share similar aesthetics and ethos with those of Vaishnavipratima of Indian designs and art. The store also boasts of an entirely new furniture and furnishings line (distinct from its Mumbai store) each specifically designed to suit large open Goan houses and its local hospitality industry.

Gorgeous bougainvilleas adorn the large wooden doors, windows and roof of this heritage villa. The store overlooks a lush green patch complete with palms and its newest outdoor furniture range alongside a water body of rare violet lotuses. The entrance is warm and welcoming as the furniture at first sight reveals the brand’s journey over the last couple of years.

The first room of the villa consists of beautifully handcrafted furniture pieces that are strikingly fused into two diverse color tones: subtle pastels and chunky bright pop colors. These include mirrors, chests of drawers, consoles, book shelves, bar units, wing chairs etc that are all made by Indian artisans. Pop art dining couture and various artists’ works are on display in the second room. The third room is the siesta corner- comprising of an elaborate four poster bed with cushions, throws and rugs passionately developed in the current and possible next year’s Pantone color tones. One can see Shibori and block-printing art in various palettes here. The intimate open café area is in the passage and back foyer of the villa and will soon serve exotic teas and bites. Vaishnavipratima Goa will be introducing exquisite lightings and conducting art workshops as well.

Vaishnavipratima says, “Within a few months of opening my flagship store in Mumbai in June 2016 I had a secret wish of opening my second store soon. Seeing its success, expansion was only natural and nothing better than a heritage Goan villa! Moreover, post intensive market research and the current lifestyle changes, Goa seemed like the ideal place for my designs. It is after all known as a ‘Tourist’s Paradise!”

They also pay a homage to the Great Himalayas, the mystical land of magic and grandeur, resulting in cocktails soaked with zesty tastes.
