Designers Concept: Innovative Architecture Solutions
Architecture is not a new concept and has existed since the dawn of civilization. When you find ways to improve and do things differently in a field that has been around for a long time, that is innovation.
Designers Concept, an architecture firm founded by Mr. Rahul Mutha in 1994 in Pune, strives to be the epitome of innovation. With innovation, the assumption is that it is about adding a lot of things, but in reality, it is about taking away what is unnecessary.
Designers Concept is a team of like-minded individuals trying to push the boundaries of what’s possible with an objective to create solutions for problems that no one even knows existed.
They encompass a blend of technology, tradition, and the ancient science of Vastu Shastras, for a holistic approach to design. With their knowledge, skills, and abilities, they strive to provide never-ending solutions for their clients.
Designers Concept is a community that believes in giving back. Blessed with immense prosperity and tremendous success, they contribute to the welfare and progress of society as a whole to propel humanity towards greater heights.
Designers Concept has a vision never to accept the world as it appears and see it for what it could be. With Integrity, Passion, Accountability, and Commitment to Customers as its core values, Designers Concept is working towards achieving its mission to deliver beyond expectations, always.
According to CII, the design industry in India was worth Rs 18,832 crore and is growing at a rate of 23-25% annually. Design can help transform how people look at things and result in new economic benefits and a better quality of life.
The Visionary Behind Designers Concept
Mr. Rahul Mutha, the Founder, and CEO of Designers Concept has always had a keen eye and has been contemplating the design of everything. From a young age, He had an innate curiosity about how systems work in nature.
This curiosity led him to be the first in his family to pursue a formal education in architecture, and during the course, he knew he had found his calling in life.
With his strong passion and insight, he took a leap of faith and founded Designers Concept entirely on his own, and today, the firm has offices across Pune, Mumbai, and Jaipur.
As a founder, Mr. Rahul Mutha’s dedication to his work is unparalleled. He quotes Steve Jobs, “Design is everything,” to summarize his work. Discussing the future of architecture, Mr. Rahul says, “Technology will lead the way.”
In spite of his tremendous success and incredible achievements, he stays exceptionally humble, showcased by the following statement, “Put your heart and soul into everything you do, no matter how small. Do not concern yourself with the outcome, and always have pure intentions. If you do so, the universe will reward you in ways you cannot imagine.”
Mr. Rahul Mutha is currently working on recycling the waste materials of an interior design site with the help of PMC, which includes identifying, segregating, and color coding the waste material and then reusing or recycling them.
