vis-a-vis Lighting Experience Center, Delhi, India
Oculus principal Archit Jain was invited to New Delhi, India to attend the launch of vis-à-vis India Pvt. Ltd.’s new lighting and outdoor furniture experience center. The event also coincided with an exhibition on Design as Social Capital, in a dedicated exhibition space inside the experience center. Amit and Hardeep Gupta, owners of vis-à-vis had invited the who’s who of India-based architects, along with what it seemed like all the lighting designers practicing in India, whether based in India or in other parts of the world.
Archit has collaborated with vis-à-vis’s fine team on several projects in India, and most recently on the Mindtree Network Operations Center in Bangalore.
We have always considered Amit to be a rarity within the lighting industry with a unique combination of business acumen, technical capabilities and aesthetic sensibilities. Now, with providing a stage for the design community in Delhi, he has clearly surpassed himself. The space created at the vis-à-vis experience center is unique, certainly in India, but most likely across the globe. If you are involved with any part of lighting design, a trip here is highly recommended.
