Location: Bengaluru, Karnataka, India
The bejewelled mythological bird Ganda Bherunda welcomes visitors to the Ganjam Nagappa jewellery showroom in Bangalore. We had to make sure that this showroom, while fulfilling service and technological requirements of the next century, did not lose its place in the culture of Bangalore and Karnataka. Hence this Ghanda Bherunda written about in the Mahabharata, as well as the Telegu and Kannada lexicons, dominates the showroom as a protector, king and Maha Vishnu. The elegant forms of the showcase and cabinets crafted in rich burl wood rest on a patterned marble floor covered by a copper and gypsum ceiling. The plan works efficiently for easy movement for both customers and staff. The curved glass counters facilitate an unobstructed view of the jewellery.The colours of the bird - red, green and gold - are echoed by the showcases and the fabrics used for the chairs and sofas.Thus a three dimensional space has been designed that not only serves the customers for whom it has been created, but we hope enhances their spirit.
