Kaushik Ramanathan is a designer with the quest to harness and maintain the basic needs of human beings, mindful of the bigger picture and a deep respect for the environment. His designs strive to retain the innocence and simplicity which appeals to the child in all of us.
A graduate of the National Institute of Design in Ahmedabad, batch of 1985, with a specialization in Industrial Design, he worked in mainstream industry, before deciding to shift the equation radically by choosing to live in a non-urban setting in Goa.
As he puts it "I was garnering a false sense of invulnerability, when in fact nature all around me was reminding me that all things are connected. Humanity seeks self-sufficiency while nature demands relationship". And this is the manner he now continues to practice design out of his home in Goa.
