Doshi Levien is a London based design studio founded in 2000 by Nipa Doshi and Jonathan Levien.
Nipa grew up in India and studied at the National Institute of Design, while Jonathan, who is from Scotland, trained in fine cabinet making followed by industrial design. Together they create design that is both technically advanced and imbued with cultural resonance.
Both designers each bring their individual skills to the projects they work on: Doshi being primarily concerned with visual culture and the materiality of things, while Levien is more focused on industrial precision and technique. They have worked on projects in the fields of furniture, fashion, homewares, technology and lighting. For HAY, they have created the Uchiwa Lounge Chair, Dapper and Quilton.
