Doshi + Levien is a London-based design office established in 2000 by Nipa Doshi (born 1971 in Mumbai, India) and Jonathan Levien (born 1972 in Scotland). Doshi Levien's work celebrates the hybrid and explores the coming together of cultures, technology, storytelling, industrial design, and fine craftsmanship. Nipa graduated from the Royal College of Art, London, in 1997 but she soon returned to India to work with local craftspeople. After a short stay she went back to London where she met Jonathan Levien who had recently completed a master's degree in furniture design at the Royal College. They married the year they established their namesake studio. Working across disciplines and industries, they make their own rules that are based on extracting as much richness as possible out of an idea. Doshi + Levien has collaborated with several manufacturers, including Moroso, Swarovski, Intel, Camper, Authentics, Cappellini and BD Barcelona Design.
