I am Shani and I am an industrial designer by profession focusing on furniture design. In my first 3 years working in the furniture industry, I was able to work with a lot of interior designers, hence, I wanted to also be able to design my own space. Art and design plays a huge role in my life. I always enjoy being surrounded with various artworks and creative people.
