Yukti is an alumnus of School of Design and Visual Arts at Apeejay Stya University (ASU), who pursued her Masters in Design and was part of the 2018 batch. In an informal interview, the design expert highlights the role aesthetics and lifestyle play in the world of interior design. Edited excerpts:

Tell us about your day at work?

When you start exploring design, you start designing your own life! Interior design is a vast subject with so many options. Currently, I am pursuing my PhD in Interior Design and gaining practical experience along the way. I work as a designer, educator and research coordinator with the vision of helping people to live a beautiful life.

What was the inspiration to join this field of work?

Lifestyle plays a very important role in enhancing our wellbeing and everything starts from where we nurture. In the era of urban living, it is important to stick to functionality and aesthetics that revitalise our prosperity. Everyone deserves a good place to live in and this realisation brought me into the field.

What are your best memories from the ASU days?

The best times were the brainstorming sessions which we had with our teachers. Sitting in the canteen and discussing our subjects for long, is something which I miss the most. Also, I cannot forget the library where I got the opportunity to read so many wonderful books.

One advice for current ASU students?

Move with your passion and do not lose hope. Think of yourself as a person who would like to contribute to the field of your choice and stay inspired always. Also, keep up with technology for better performance.

Your future targets?

I truly believe in urban and biophilic sustainability and giving people more and more ideas about the field. My role as a designer and educator would surely help people to live a better life and understand the importance of good interior design enhanced using creativity and technology.
