BBItalia The Collection
A design studio based in London, Doshi Levien is the brainchild of Nipa Doshi and Jonathan Levien, who have been collaborating together for over 10 years. With influences of visual culture and industrial precision, their work in furniture design is a blend of modern and Indian heritage. With rich textiles and architectural structure as inspiration, their furniture plays with material and pattern. Together they have collaborated with Moroso, Kvadrat, B&B Italia, Cappellini, Camper, Swarovski and Galerie Kreo. They create unique and modern pieces that work in many design aesthetics.
Doshi Levien is a brand synonymous with cultural hybridism. Founded by Nipa Doshi and Jonathan Levien, the partnership marries together Doshi’s love for materials with Levien’s deep understanding of technique and industrial design. Having been raised in India, she has an astute eye for visual culture with the goal of making products that can contribute to a society. Levien has a background of fine cabinet making, and received a Masters in furniture design from Royal College of Art in London, where they met and formed a partnership dedicated to uniting culture, technology, industrial design, and fine craftsmanship.
