Nulty launches second studio in India

29th November 2023

(India) – International lighting design consultancy Nulty has opened a new studio in Bengaluru, its second Indian premises and seventh international studio to date.

A year on from the launch of its Pune studio, the new studio will see the appointment of three new designers and Managing Director Harshita Shetty, who will move up as the head of the India division. The move comes as Nulty looks to build on its portfolio of work, which includes large-scale mixed-use schemes in Hyderabad and Mumbai, a renowned F&B outlet in Goa, and a destination resort in the Maldives.

Shetty re-joins the Nulty team as Managing Director of Nulty India, after previously working with the company in 2016. With a decade of experience of working in India, and as a lighting designer and architect, Shetty will bring an extensive network that she has developed with developers, architecture practices and interior design firms based in and around Bengaluru. In her role at Nulty she will manage the day-to-day running of the Pune and Bengaluru studios and work closely with her team to create unique design narratives and architectural lighting schemes.

Paul Nulty, Founder of Nulty, says: “It feels like the right time for a forward- thinking lighting design practice to make its mark in Bengaluru. The India growth story is a compelling one, and as the complexity of architectural projects grows and more clients make commitments to sustainability, we want to provide local expertise and Nulty’s collaborative approach, backed up with the creativity, knowledge, experience, and ambition that a global lighting consultancy can provide. We’re delighted to have Harshita on board to champion the importance of great lighting design in India and grow our brand in key investment cities.”

Harshita Shetty, Managing Director of Nulty India, adds: “I’ve already been witness to the vision, storytelling, and dynamic energy that Nulty brings to every project, so I’m delighted to be back. As an organization that’s now in seven cities with more than 80 staff, what excites me the most is the active involvement and close communication that we’ll have between teams. This kind of dedication, collaborative effort and knowledge sharing will add great value to the projects that we work on and help us fit perfectly into the Indian context. I look forward to cultivating strong client relationships and working on some exciting projects in India.”
