Smit Bhagat & Rajvi Mehta


Inspired to draw, design and build structures from a very young age, Smit followed his creative spirit to earn a professional degree in Architecture from Academy of Architecture, Mumbai. He is passionate to create unique and timeless designs which appropriately respond to its location and culture and needs the requirements of change and growth. He designs to uplift the quality of life, work, play and wellbeing of those the buildings serve. Smit’s architectural solutions emphasize on warmth, natural materials, tactility and refinement. Being born in a family with extensive background in field of design and construction, Smit grew up seeing dreams turn into reality. His hands on approach and distinctive eye for scales and proportions made him choose Architecture as a subject of interest. Smit’s keen interest in bamboo architecture and green building was recognized at Green School, Bali, Indonesia. He refined his design skills over the years to become the best version of himself. Today Smit is expanding his father’s legacy to varied array of design disciplines.

Rajvi is a young, cheerful and vibrant creative who believes in the power of beautiful interiors to transform daily life. With a degree in Interior Design from Rachana Sansad, Mumbai, and a well trained eye for quality and sophisticated symmetry, craftsmanship, furnishings and textiles, she is best known for coupling order with saturated burst of colours and optimism. She creates polished spaces that are functional, friendly, beautiful and lively. Each project speaks to her clients’ own interests, travels and lifestyle. Rajvi’s interest in design grew from the seeds of her skills in art and craft. Rajvi made bold and timeless paintings at a very young age. She sketches out anything that rekindles her design sense. Her undaunting imagination and creativity was recognized and she came first in her design thesis.

Together they formed the impetus to create their own Architectural and Interior design practice called deSigneR in 2018. The young duo, since then has been working hard to achieve their aspirations. The inborn talents of both the individuals broke the paradigms of design and are known to research and carry out experiments. Their innovative, bold and bespoke designs are appreciated by their clients. Team deSigneR constantly strives to update their knowledge and set trends. Team deSigneR strongly believes in elevating experiences and transforming lifestyles by implementing technologies and enduring designs.
