Design Pataki is one of India’s foremost digital platforms on luxury design, established in 2013 by Esha Gupta.
We bring to you a compelling mix of current trends and extraordinary findings across interior design, lifestyle, art and architecture. Since inception, our focus has been simple – to fill the void of information and streamline the conversation around design in India. From interviews with some of the most brilliant minds in the industry to features on inspiring spaces, our editorial approach centres on a thoughtful combination of Indian and international sensibilities. We deconstruct and offer insights into the biggest design events and shows across the globe, which are also chronicled in our Pataki Calendar. Through intelligent storytelling and unique perspectives, our talented editorial team is committed to establishing a connection between the reader and the world of design. In 2020, Design Pataki launched its exclusive Cult platform, offering members access to cutting-edge digital showrooms of the finest design brands in India, editorial deep dives, and expert opinions that deconstruct the design industry.
Design Pataki has been invited to cover some of the biggest international design shows like Salone Del Mobile- Milan, Maison Et Objet- Paris, Ambiente- Frankfurt, Dubai Design Week – Dubai and Ikea’s Design Democratic Day, Sweden. Our unique insights on design have led us to moderate and be part of panel discussions for Godrej, D/code, Istituto Marangoni and SheThePeople.
