ART


INI Art fosters a community of our in-house artists as well as other contemporary emerging artists. Each artist’s website is independent but also part of INIArt.com. Our customized artists’ online gallery is central to our initiative to incorporate art into our practice. It is where friends and visitors go to see exhibited art and help enhance the reach of artists. If an artist so desires INI Art also provides a platform for the viewer to purchase art from an artist’s website as well as through the INI Art online gallery. Join our international community of artists today!

INI Art for the Art Collector

Buying art on INI Art is like taking a trip through an individual artist’s gallery. You get to know the artist’s work. You learn about the individual’s story and form a connection with the artist. We hope to work with your needs and help find fine art in any medium from many emerging artists.


RESEARCH AND PUBLICATION


When design caters to the public, it has to move from being abstract to becoming more practical and approachable. For this, the solution needs to build upon a strong research base. At INI, we delve into analyzing and understanding the user engagement with the space, the way they move through it while experiencing and interacting with it. The research cell at INI actively engages in the ongoing and prospective projects to understand the interface between design and its social, cultural and environmental facets. Through research, we try to connect our ideas and design professionals with the academia and the community at large. Spreading the reach further, INI has also ventured in publishing. Our first book “DESIGNING for MODERN INDIA” provides insights into our work, ethos and design philosophy. Our ongoing research and publication ventures include research-based monographs and papers that attempt to theorize our works and their influence on the social, cultural and environmental parameters. 
The research cell engages in:
  1. Policy research
  2. Design Studies (pre-design, user-oriented, post-occupancy)
  3. Community and social research
  4. CSR activities
