Silky brings with her a wide array of experience – putting to good use her various professional trainings in Design at NIFT (Bengaluru), Craft Management & Entrepreneurship at IICD (Jaipur) & Sustainability by Design at Pratt Institute (New York). She teaches sustainability by design and has 10+ yrs of experience in the commercial interior design and construction sector with a focus on F&B spaces and airports. She is a LEED Green Associate.
Silky’s artistic explorations became a guiding force for her to discover her keen interest in the exploration of natural environments, climate change and imbalanced human activity, and she gravitated quite naturally towards Sustainable practices and its application in nearly every aspect of life. This is where her personal and professional interests intersected with DFC’s global mission.
At DFC, Silky plays the role of our in-house design thinking expert. Her interventions include design strategy, communication design, curriculum and training optimisation, digitising the DFC framework and inclusion of sustainable design and living principles in the DFC curriculum. Silky is a strong believer in the joy of continuous learning, the power of design and the change it can drive!
