An architect and interior designer by training, Sandesh Prabhu began his career working with renowned architect Hafeez Contractor in Mumbai. Soon after discovering his passion for interior design, he found himself in the role of the in-house designer for “Me, Furniture and Beyond,” a lifestyle store owned by the Birla Group. At the store, he designed furniture and developed his understanding of well-known international furniture brands. In 2005, having gained valuable, on-ground experience, and fueled by a burning desire to make his own, unique mark in the field of design, Sandesh set up his eponymous design firm SPDS – Sandesh Prabhu Design Studio. At SPDS, Sandesh and his team design exclusive, high-end spaces for an exacting roster of clients. His clientele includes leading cricketers, Bollywood actors, builders, fashion designers, industrialists, artists and more from all across the country as well as from overseas.

What does design mean to you? Name one designer you would like to work with in your lifetime, and why?
Design is the art and science of enhancing a space or an object to achieve an aesthetically pleasing environment for the end customer, without taking away the comfort and utility associated with that space or object. A designer is a one-point source who plans, researches, coordinates and puts the entire project together, to achieve the final vision he or she has in mind.

I would have liked to work with Antoni Gaudi for his out-of-the-box creativity and artistry.

When designing a room, what is the most important factor for you?
Orientation according to natural lighting and ventilation is extremely important.

What inspires you each day to do a better job? What has been your proudest moment as a designer?
The journey of creating new, beautiful spaces and objects, and the challenge of satisfying my inner creative quest, along with the client's requirements, inspire me to do a better job. After finishing an assignment, the smile I notice on the most difficult, hard-to-please client's face is the proudest moment for me.
