Born in India in 1987, Rohan started with a degree in Fashion (2008) from Pearl Academy of Fashion, New Delhi and then went onto win a full scholarship to pursue Masters in Industrial Design (2010) at Central Saint Martins, London. At CSM he developed a keen interest in Critical Design, Discursive Design and Socially Responsive Design. Rohan's MA thesis ‘Embodying ethics’ received critical acclaim for its craftsmanship and for its socially informed, relevant and responsive nature. The focus of his work is to use design to de-familiarise everyday objects and encourage people to think, rethink and discuss issues from an ethical

perspective. Having exhibited his work at London Design Festival

in 2010 and 2011, the work is currently on a UK Crafts Council touring exhibition 'Block Party' curated by visual artist Lucy Orta.

 

After graduation he worked as a Product Designer with sportswear label Nike at its European HQ in Netherlands for 2 years (2010 -2012). Since 2013, Rohan decided to work independently on a new project 'Embodying ethics : Endangered' which aims to inform the issue of extinction of critical endangered species. The project is being exhibited at the 2013 London Design Festival.
