Shalini-Sahoo-main‘Intentions define the essential nature of everything we create and eventually become a part of.’


In Shalini’s works and her dealings, to question this basic intention is of prior importance. As a practitioner in design Shalini Sahoo has been conversing for over a decade between two worlds – as a colour and material designer for the German automobile industry and as a barefoot designer with craftspersons in the Indian subcontinent. This colossal span in practice has made her reflect on the potential and impact, design as a profession has on society at various levels. Shalini’s portfolio is enriched with international work experiences. Ranging not only over continents but also over social milieus.
