The legendary Indian design firm's custom commission for the Fondation Cartier, inspired by the rhythm of breathing

Studio Mumbai, founded by Indian architect Bijoy Jain (born 1965), is composed of architects and craftsmen who design and build each project themselves using local resources. From December 2023 to April 2024, the Fondation Cartier pour l'art contemporain welcomed Jain and his studio to design an exhibition space. Inspired by the rhythm of breathing, Jain creates structures of bamboo, brick and stone, forming a meditative landscape ripe for contemplation in dialogue with Jean Nouvel's original building. Sculptures, objects and furniture interact with artworks by Hu Liu and Alev Eb zziya Siesbye, whom Jain invited to collaborate with him. Published in conjunction with the exhibition, the catalog, conceived as a "work in progress" of the finished space, invites readers to discover Jain's aesthetics and philosophy. The extensively illustrated book includes Jain's drawings, photographs of his studio and current projects.
