Designsmith Joins Love That Design’s Community!

“We don’t do boring,” reads Designsmith’s website homepage, and it aligns perfectly with its Creative Director, Mihir Sanganee’s vision for the company. Tired of Pinterest-and-paste culture, Sanganee has self-assigned the task of designing novel spaces in the UAE by drawing inspiration from his lifestyle experience in the region. Even since its inception, over three decades ago, Designsmith has worked with a client first approach making sure every concept is unique.

The design and build (D&B) company provides services ranging from authority approvals, designing and documentation up to completion, including MEP, joinery and bespoke furniture. Within 34 years, it has grown into a team of over 500 people working in a 70,000 sq. ft. spread in the UAE. 

 

From Food & Beverage projects such as Three By Eva and Fil Café AUH to corporate design and builds like PACMAN HQ and Khaleej Times Broadcasting Studios to InnerFight and Ayur 22 in the wellness spaces, they have done it all and yet are eager to do so much more. Sanganee attributes their success so far to their ‘no frills, no gimmicks, no repeating’ mantra.

 

“From supporting designers and design studios to bringing their designs to life, Designsmith has managed to curate a niche for delivering exceptional finishes by being technically sound and detailing every element. Our ability to build what we design sets us apart from the crowd, because we can manage client expectations and budgets to a large extent through thoughtful design solutions, correct specifications and good value engineering support.”

Mihir Sanganee, Creative Director at Designsmith.
