Mozez Singh the acclaimed (and good-looking) film maker, producer, writer has now donned a new hat, that of a designer. He has produced highly acclaimed films like Peddlers and White Noise and line produced A Mighty Heart starring Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. He has also directed a feature film on the Sunburn Music Festival. Mozez has carved a unique niche for himself in the field of product design with his collection, MUGHAL POP, which was launched at the Good Earth store in Mumbai last year. Mozez believes that films and interiors share a common bond, which is of exhibiting and selling emotions in an honest fashion. A piece of Furniture can make or break a room, as furniture can be extremely emotive. In the same way, films possess a strong sense of aesthetics, which enables the medium to depict several emotions. We caught up with him at Goodearth where he had come to launch his collection during India Design. He also won EDIDA for his Chair ‘Akbar is a Star’ and did up an installation at the exhibition venue. Check out the Style Report for more on India Design.
P.S- I love his quirky titles for the furniture pieces, totally apt with the name MUGHAL POP
