Divya Thakur

Founder & Creative Director
Design Temple

Passionate about all things Indian, Divya is a multi-disciplinary designer, who, through her various endeavours, seeks to create a relevant identity for Indian design – one that is not bound by its origin, medium, or time.

Having spent nearly a decade in advertising and design, Divya set up Design Temple in 1999. Since then, her work has shown and retailed at destinations across the globe.

Her approach to the retail sector is organic and experimental. Divya’s witty, informative, and impeccably finished products speak a contemporary Indian design language.

She was commissioned by the Victoria and Albert Museum, London in 2007; wherein she presented and curated her take on Contemporary India. She has also showcased the unorganized design sector with an exhibition titled Indigenous India in 2004, Milan.
