Our road to 'Bliss'..

Hi All,

Would like to start this blog with a brief introduction to 'Bliss'!

About Vibe Design Lab:

Started by Mr. Priyal Thakker & Ms. Mallika Desai, along with friends, Pratik, Suparna & Abhay in 2005, Vibe Design Lab is a multi-faceted visual communications & design firm delivering design solutions in the fields of :

Visual merchandising

Product design & Fixture design

Interior design & Styling

Architecture and Urban design

Set Design & Creative direction

Our motto “DESIGN BRINGS DREAMS TO LIFE” has been the driving force to continually explore the new horizons, in all forms of design. At Vibe, we believe in dreams....and the fact that the way to crystallize them into reality is through a conscious focused effort. So our first step is to dream.......dream big........dream right. Our design studio is our laboratory where we undertake unending experiments in search of designs, that vibe in sync with our project requirements.

About “Bliss”

“Bliss” started off as one such dream….and countless lunch time discussions. How can we at “Vibe” promote design & creativity? Can we create a one – stop lifestyle destination that provides an ideal platform for people from all walks of life to showcase their creativity? We at Vibe have always found our “Bliss” in our passion for design. We’ve always felt that it would be a great idea for like – minded people to showcase their creativity in one space, however, varied the product. Hence, Bliss……….

We want “Bliss” to become “a lifestyle destination” with a difference – every product is unique, handpicked, & therefore can be customized as per our clients requirements. Our designers range from well known names in the fashion industry to working professionals with a flair for design & the desire to do something different. We showcase each designer’s work as their own, thereby giving them due respect & credit for their work. We intend to create an oasis of immense talent, a treasure trove of products that will add happiness to our client’s lives. We envisage it to be a gathering space where like minded people can get together over a cup of coffee. Our future plans include design showcases, workshops, exhibitions, bazaars………several experiments that will keep the “spirit of design” alive.

We hope that coming to “Bliss” will be a “blissful” experience for each & every person that walks through the little wooden gate.

About the name:

Bliss happiness; heaven; pleasure; delight; paradise; harmony………… the experience that we imagined we would create & share with the world around us.

  1. Hi,
    Would just like you to know that the designs on some of the cushions you are retailing by radhika vissanji, singapore of Devangi designs are actually made by me. She copied my art from my online deviantART gallery and printed them on cushions. I have not been able to take action as yet because I am a small time designer.

    I have already had the owner of Loose Ends remove them from the shelves. I request you to do the same.

    Before you do, please have a look:

    I hope you will do the right thing. Some of my friends retail with you as well, and this sort of behaviour brings their work down, and the reputation of your store as well, which I would not like to see happen.
