Nikhil Paul was born in Zambia, raised in New Delhi and studied Design in Milan.
His critically acclaimed work for Paul Matter, a lighting studio that he started in 2016- explores light design by blending the tradtional with the experimental, form with function and detail with the ordinary. His first collection of lights called Tango established him as one of worlds’s premier lighting designers.
Tango featured in the book ‘100 Objects of Desire’ and has already received a status of an icon. Over few years the Studio‘s product line has evolved from a core grouping of elemental lighting fixtures to a broader collection of sculptural pieces that illustrate a sense of materiality, craftsmanship and detailing. Studio’s work has been featured in multiple publications such as Architectural Digest, Elle Decor, World Of Interiors Wallpaper* and many more.
The Work has been exhibited at Tokyo Design Week in Japan, Nomad Circle in Monaco, Design Show in Beirut, AD Design show in Mumbai, Salone Del Mobile in Milan and Wallpaper Handmade
