India Mahdavi finds inspiration in film, not surprising for a designer who cites James Bond as a hero; and like 007, the objects and spaces she designs are sexy, chic, and a little bit mod. Now based in Paris, her eclectic practice hints at her global roots. Mahdavi designs objects and interiors that are at once stylish and playful, with organic shapes and bright colors—like her signature Bishop stool, a ceramic interpretation of the chess piece, and her lacquered-wood Flower table. "I don't like flat pieces,” she has said. “My favorites are graphic, whimsical, and colorful." Her luxe style has won her the international jetset’s approval, as well as high-profile interior design commissions including London’s Bungalow 8, Mexico City’s Condesa DF hotel, shops for Givenchy worldwide, and the Paris apartment of fashion designer Alber Elbaz.
