Kanika is an Architect and Commercial Interior Designer at tvsdesign who seeks global industry disruption by spreading transformative, contemporary applications of Ma. She passionately believes in the correlation between emotional wellbeing and the universal human need for shelter. She is dedicated to designing experiential spaces that contribute to calmness by identifying what is truly necessary, living small and valuing a life of meaning. By practicing simplicity to reduce stressors of the present-day built environment, Kanika aims to achieve physical and mental restoration — essential to reaching balance and sophistication.
