// ABOUT //
ROOSHADSHROFF is a multi-disciplinary design and research studio. Founded in June 2011 in Mumbai by RooshadShroff, the architectural practice predominantly dedicated to the realization of spaces soon developed its own design department, operating at nano- scales crafting bespoke furniture, products and materials.
Using traditional Indian techniques and making it a point of honour to re-actualize the handmade, it became a reference within the design world for highly sophisticated pieces. RooshadShroff received his undergraduate degree in Architecture at Cornell University where he was awarded the Edward Palmer York Memorial Prize for Outstanding performance in Design, as well as the Michael Rapuano Memorial Distinction in Design Award. His graduating thesis was later exhibited as part of the Emerging Talents, Emerging Technologies Exhibit at the Beijing Architecture Biennial in 2006.
Whilst pursuing his Masters in Architecture at the Graduate School of Design at Harvard University, Rooshad served as a Teaching Assistant to renowned Spanish architect InakiAbalos. His work produced at the GSD has been exhibited at the 2010 Venice Architecture Biennial as well as the 2010 Shanghai Expo within the Spanish Pavilion. Prior to founding RSAD, RooshadShroff worked at the offices of internationally acclaimed architects such as ZahaHadid in London and OMA/REX in NYC.
The practice, albeit only 5 years, has garnered acclaim, being the recipient of the EDIDA, NDTV, IIID and GoodHome Awards, as well making the AD 50 list for two consecutive years. In addition the work of the RSAD has been exhibited at the ID Fair in Delhi, the India Art Fair and most recently at ‘Design – the India Story’ at the Prince of Wales Museum in Mumbai.
