A sneak peek at the new wave of lighting fixtures
Imagine settling down in your room with some freshly brewed tea and a book and you could customise not only the brightness of the lights but also the colour, depending on your mood. Personalised lighting with state-of-art eco-friendly technology is exactly what Gurgaon-based Usha International’s designer lighting brand Tisva specialises in. For their latest festive collection for the fall that has been available starting October 1, the brand has gone to great lengths to not only come up with a set of aesthetically pleasing illuminating options but also ones that are personalised to suit your taste and are eco-friendly as well. This designer lighting brand now also hit the headlines recently as they roped in celebrity interior designer Gauri Khan to endorse their line of lights. “She is an accomplished interior designer and the collection reflects her sophistication, hence she fits the bill perfectly,” says Vikas Gandhi adding that she will be adding in her personal touch.
“The upcoming Diwali collection focusses on modern design blends from wall lights, chandeliers to pendants, our family of lights can be customised, ” informs the vice-president.
One can choose CFLs and halogens that are dimmable, chandeliers with eco-friendly LEDs etc. “If you are in the mood to relax, during the evening tune the warm yellow tone of light to
yellow and you are set,” he adds.
The team spends six months on each collection. There are some intricately carved pieces with steel canopy, glass flowers and chrome finish. The process of individualised lighting begins when you express an interest in their designer lights. The consultants in the city come over to your home (they have no light studios in the city), understand your living space and requirements then accordingly suggest the kind of lighting system you require after you screen the catalogue. This brand that started in 2014 plans is in the process of relocating its Hyderabad studio but plans to unveil it in a couple of months.
