Tete’ a tete with Mozez Singh

Mozez Singh (800x530)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

StyleCity: Define Style. What makes a space stylish?
Mozez : Individuality! Nothing speaks you like you do, so any space that does not reflect your personality is not stylish.
StyleCity: What is the one detail that adds or retracts from a space?
Mozez: Colour, definitely the one elements that can add character to a space. I am anyway partial towards colour and ofcourse not balancing colour can make a space look garish, so colour has to be the one detail
StyleCity: Any particular colour or colours you lean towards?
Mozez: Red, God and Black, as I find Red and Gold auspicious and Black dramatic
StyleCity: Any particular style you lean towards? Or inspires you?
Mozez: There is no once style I like mix and match of styles and like bringing them together with a sense of symmetry. Like even though my entire collection is inspired by the Mughal era, it has a sense of Modern touch. I really love the orient and designs from the orient inspire me.
StyleCity: What element do you feel adds glamour to a space?
Mozez: Antiques, I really love collecting antiques and I feel they add glamour to just about any space if set right.
StyleCity: Any favourite product/interior designers?
Mozez: Goodearth, I love their products
StyleCity: Any luxurious buy you have planned for 2013?
Mozez: Possibly a new house in Mumbai

Focus: 50 shades of Green

Ok, so remember we mentioned that Emerald Green has got the honour of being Pantone colour 2013. But let us be honest, Emerald green as gorgeous as it is for clothes and accessories,is a bit too stark to have all around the house. Which is why, a slightly duller shade of emerald is the one we are seeing in Interior decor. As for me, like I said before, Emerald Green over Honeysuckle or Tangerine Tango anyday. Whether it is clothes or interiors the colour green adds a sense of lush and earthy calm, appealing to our sense of well-being, balance and harmony.
So do bring in these shades of Green in your wardrobe as well as interiors.
P.S- I have already bought myself a pair of Green pants from Promod which I wear everywhere and Green cushions are my latest decor buy, how do you plan to add green to your life?
