On Our Radar: Shefali Studio, Gujarat, India

This fashion boutique’s sustainable design taps recycled materials to provide a contemporary look and feel.



SHEFALI STUDIO, a recently launched women’s wear boutique in Vadodara, Gujarat, India, designed by Manoj Patel Studios, reuses scrap materials throughout its interior, transforming it into a multi-layered, visual experience.

Materials were chosen in a palette of contrasting tones, derived from old clay roof tiles and recycled window shutters to unused sample tiles and beer bottles. Old seating was updated for a fresh look, and recycled table legs serve as door handles. Overlapping circular rings were used to form floral hook ends for hanging product. Throughout, the palette of recycled objects offers a fresh, contemporary aesthetic that celebrates its uniqueness.

Strategy needs creative, and creative needs strategy—yep, having both is really the only way of unifying all disciplines with a common vernacular with an eye toward building a strong creative vision that is foundational to the processes. Hear from Bevan Bloemendaal, former VP, Global Environments & Creative Services at Timberland, how to connect the dots between disciplines, claiming and creating a clear differentiation for the brand and ensuring that any asset (experience, product, ad, store, office, home, video, game) is created with intention.
