Designers Group, a leading core hospitality firm in India, founded by Ar. Khozema Chitalwala, with his Textile Designer wife & partner Sujata Chitalwala, has an extensive experience of two-and-a-half decades in interior architecture. Believing in simple yet ground-breaking design, this global hospitality firm outlines concepts which evince to be smart, user-interactive and stand up to the specifications of the global market. The high-end hospitality interior architecture projects handled by the firm showcase its commitment to excellence.
The underlying creative expressions of the firm’s style – Luxury and Simplicity – though diabolically opposite in character, co-exist harmoniously in all they do! The most remarkable point, however, is the way in which the organisation infuses the sense of warmth with luxury in these starkly detailed magnificent design marvels.
The ultimate notion for the firm is to carve out a niche for themselves and establish a glocal brand value; where the immediate aim, therefore, is to make a stepping stone foundation for the inroad to that elusive segment.
Ar. Khozema Chitalwala, a prominent name in the architectural fraternity and beyond, has been a major driving force for several independent and collaborative projects across the globe. Having graduated from Rachna Sansad, Ar. Khozema Chitalwala started his career three decades ago with his first architectural project in the suburbs of Mumbai. He established his firm, Designers Group in 1988 with a dream & endeavour to institute ‘Designers Group’ as an internationally acclaimed design firm.
The initial years of his career ensued to be challenging where a couple of projects did not materialise. Working persistently on various interior design projects, Ar. Chitalwala manifested a strong base for craftsmanship, which led to his extensive and diversified work experience. With this persistence and hard work, he eventually got to work on Taj Hotels and Resort, IHCL project which was a turning point for Designers Group, granting a directional focal point on hospitality and over a period of time Designers Group became a leading hospitality design firm in India.
Nature has always been a great source of inspiration for Chitalwala’s design philosophy, keeping sustainability a key focus while outlining astounding hospitality marvels. Professionally, a creative stimulus was postulated in him by international design firm Hirsch Bedner Associates, a global runner in the Hospitality Design sector, which encouraged him to create a focused Hospitality Practice, invoking an understanding of Indian Hospitality industry.
He believes that contextual and sensitive design adds in-measurable value to any project. According to his design pedigree, he firmly believes that “being simple is difficult” which is an evident feature in his designs. Overall, his designs cater to the clients’ needs holistically by designing for a wholesome experience.
