we turn ideas into works of art.
Meenakshi Dutta, founder of Design Et Cetra broadened her design vocabulary through a diploma course in interior design at Exterior Interior, Kolkata while pursuing a Master's degree in Comparative Literature from Jadavpur University, Kolkata. Her style can be best described as eclectic and versatile, drawing lot of inspiration from art, fashion, photography, literature, cinema and especially architecture. These experiences enable her to create a clearer sense of her own aesthetics. She delights in the serendipity that comes with such experiences.
Our current body of work rests within the hospitality, residential and commercial sectors. The studio’s approach is to create a unique identity for each project. .Authenticity of project resonates not only in the design solution but in the selection of a natural palette of materials and exchange of thoughts with the craftsmen and the clients. Design Et Cetra creates spaces for living that are simple, efficient and timeless. The basis of our design is rooted in modernism, in our love and appreciation of new materials, newer construction methods and our focus on energy efficiency.
As a small sized firm we have the ability to provide hands-on involvement from ideation to execution. Design Et Cetra as a consultancy specializes in interior design and general management of its interior design. We listen to the wishes and concerns of every client and through many conversations we make each project the clear embodiment of their dreams. Each design draws on our expertise in integrating interiors, buildings, objects and gardens. And Meenakshi understands the profound relationship that all these disciplines have on creating cohesive, honest and authentic spaces.
“Man is conscious of great happiness when he feels that he is creating…” And it is this happiness that defines Design Et Cetra.
