Doshi Levien is an internationally acclaimed design studio founded by designers Nipa Doshi and Jonathan Levien. Nipa grew up in India and studied design at the National Institute of Design, founded on the manifesto by Charles and Ray Eames. Jonathan trained in fine cabinet making followed by industrial design. They met at the Royal College of Art and have been working together for over 10 years in their London studio.
Nipa and Jonathan bring together many worlds in their work. Nipa’s
approach is rooted in her plural upbringing and astute eye for visual
culture. Jonathan’s approach is rooted in industrial precision, combined
with the sensuality of a makers hand and deep understanding of
materials. Working across disciplines and industries, Doshi Levien’s
work celebrates the hybrid and explores the coming together of cultures,
technology, industrial design and fine craftsmanship. They have created
work for industry leaders Moroso, Kvadrat, B&B italia, Cappellini,
Camper, Swarovski, Galerie Kreo, museums and cultural institutions.
