“We, at DeZineBox take time to plan every aspect of a project, make all the selections, get all the details down on papers- well notated so as to convey every intent.”
Shweta Deshmukh (Founder, DeZineBox)
While everyone would love their home and workplace to be seen as one of the most beautifully designed places on the planet, there are those who reach beyond that and turn bare walls & spaces into shrines of designs and excellence. Shweta Deshmukh, The Principal Architect of Shweta Deshmukh & Associates and DeZineBox, with an eye for creativity and an innate sense of balance in design, entered the world of entrepreneurship by establishing an architectural & Interior firm, Shweta Deshmukh & Associates (SDA) at Navi Mumbai in 2010.
Shweta, via SDA, has worked on many weekend homes, multiplexes & malls, farmhouses, and many commercial and residential interiors. Her ability to create timeless designs with a modern & aesthetic touch and ardent desire to make architecture & interior designs accessible & affordable globally led to the foundation of DeZineBox, India’s First & Only Online Design Consultancy that ‘Works For & With You’.
Thanks to Shweta and her creative mindset that offers a unique and innovative approach to cater to all interior design needs, thereby bringing in transformation in the interior design world.
FEATHERS IN THE CAP
Despite having a history of Epilepsy which grilled her childhood, she has always stood tall. Today, while she recalls her journey of vicissitude, she says she had always relentlessly struggled to prove herself as normal as others. However, her effort has paid off well as she crafts an awe-inspiring journey with DeZineBox.
Shweta has 20 years of domain experience with many awards and recognitions to her credit. Exceptional Woman of Excellence, Best Coworking Design of the Year, Archid Award by Fortune Street, Most Innovative Firm of the Year 2019 are few to mention.
She is also a jury for AceTech Design Wall powered by The Economic Times for the past 5 years and also featured as “Top 10 Women-Led Start-ups of Mumbai in 2020”. She was invited to speak on “Architect Building an IT platform” at WADe Asia.
To boast of, Shweta is also featured in various Architectural and Interior magazines as 50 Phenomenal Architects, Young Architectural Practices across the country, Woman Achiever, Inspiring 50 Architects & Interior Designers of India, India’s Young Architects & Interior Designer, and Wonder Women.
STANDING OUT FROM THE REST
Shweta says she wants to design every house on this planet and if possible other planets too! She has used this passion for her work to take architecture practice to an advanced level.
She also mentions many times clients only wanted designs and didn’t expect architects to visit the site as they love executing it themselves. It not only ensured cost-cutting but also gave them the joy of designing. When online furniture portals started flooding in the Indian market, it was just then Shweta conceived the idea of DeZineBox in 2014 but as she was expecting a baby, motherhood was prioritized. It was back in 2017 when Shweta along with her husband started sculpturing DeZineBox.
In Shweta’s words, “DeZineBox has worked on 250+ projects in more than 65 Indian Cities and 5 Countries that includes Kenya, UAE, Australia & USA.”
AN INSPIRATION FOR ALL
Shweta’s love, devotion, and determination for her profession are truly inspiring. She had fought against all the odds in her life and thus, becoming an example for many worth idealizing. She explains she had surrendered her life a long ago when she had hit the most heartbreaking moments of her life. After that day, she has never questioned why for anything that has happened to her. She accepts everything and opens her heart and mind to the infinite wonder that exists for her in life.
