Sunita Kohli's design career has spanned over four decades. The discipline she studied was English Literature. For her masters degree, she wrote a dissertation on Christopher Marlowe, taught literature in a well-known undergraduate college and then went on to become a celebrated and much-awarded furniture manufacturer, interior designer and architectural restorer.

In 1992, she was conferred the Padmashri, among India's highest civilian awards, by the President of India, "for contribution to national life by excellence in the field of Interior Design and Architectural Restoration”. To date, she is the only designer thus awarded.Sunita Kohli is the president of K2INDIA, a new firm started in 2010 with her architect daughter, Kohelika Kohli. K2INDIA offers a discerning clientele architecture, interior design, furniture, restoration, landscape and construction services.

Today, Sunita Kohli will discuss her design philosophy and a few of her projects. These are spread across several countries and across many specialties... public buildings, hotels and resorts, luxury hotel boats, forts, palaces, heritage properties, aircrafts, corporate offices and private residences.
