"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 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 diverse international work experiences. Since 2016 she is researching on harmonising Human-Material-Interaction (hHMI) within transit spaces at a PhD level at the Royal College of Art in London.
