Architect and interior designer Nijoo Dubey is a faculty in the Design for Retail Experience discipline at NID Bengaluru. Since 2007, she has been teaching design fundamentals across disciplines and has a passion for colour applications in products, spaces, surfaces, and
finishes— a subject she has taught extensively. She also teaches Spatial Perception, Visualisation of Space, and Elements of Design.
Nijoo earned a bachelor’s degree in architecture from Maulana Azad National Institute of Technology, Bhopal and then went on to pursue her master’s in Furniture and Interior Design at NID Ahmedabad. She has also been the coordinator of the NID Asian Paints Colour Research Studio and Industry Interface at NID Bengaluru. Her research interests include packaging of FMCG products, colour in the Indian context, study of consumer aspirations and user perferences of colour in interior and exterior spaces. She has developed a kit comprising a set of exercisies that are to be performed with the user to understand their psychological influences on colour choices. A research paper that describes the kit and the user-tests that were conducted in Chennai was published in The Trellis, a research-based publication from NID. With an experience of over six years, Nijoo has extended her design expertise to a number of projects that range from wall fashion development for Berger Paints to vernacular architecture practice, from furniture for Pizza Hut restaurants to the development of women’s garment collections using Kasauti embroidery.
