Innovation Design


Vinit is a Mechanical Engineer and a Product Designer from MIT Institute of Design. He has worked in Larsen & Toubro Pvt. Ltd. in the Heavy Engineering Department at Powai, Mumbai as a Mechanical Engineer

His academic interests lie in form studies, product development and biomimicry. He is also trained in parametric modelling software.

He is a keen nature observer and admirer. Wildlife Photography is his passion and now it is his serious hobby. He wishes to leverage his knowledge of nature with his design skills and then couple it with the strength of parametric modelling to design and create.

He strongly believes that sound and its form are not mutually exclusive, one is the mere manifestation of the other in a different domain. His is working on how sound can be reparametrized into three-dimensional domain, which will help him make tangible products from sound.
