Shailesh Rajput Studio

Shailesh Rajput Studio’s bespoke lighting installations, furniture pieces, sculptures, and wall murals are an exquisite ode to handcrafted Indian design. With a strong belief in the future of craftsmanship and personalization over mechanization, the Mumbai-based studio makes use of hand-blown glass, copper, and brass to actualize their designs.
The studio is founded by Shailesh Rajput, the Principal Designer at Shailesh Rajput Studio whose quest is in adding soul to everything he creates. After having obtained his bachelor’s degree in Design, he travelled across the country to find his inspiration and understand various cultures and diverse opinions.

From the Taj Mahal to the dichotomy of nature, the studio’s designs see a myriad of influences. The ARMA-TER lights crafted in cast glass, brass, and rock crystal follow the basic principle of nature’s duality while the NATH Chandelier takes inspiration from traditional Maharashtrian jewellery. Bringing ancient Indian practices to the forefront with contemporary craft sensibilities, the YOG SURYA NAMASKAR Wall Clock features handcrafted hard clay figurines in the 12 yoga asanas. Shailesh Rajput Studio passionately advocates the merit and beauty of Indian craft, and promotes it through all their designs.
