For our third Maker of the Day, meet Niti Parikh. Niti is a Bay Area TechShop user and super-maker, making the world happier one unique piece of wall art at a time.
Why I make
I have been making things using my hands and fulfilling my inner urge to create constantly since I was a kid. It was a natural choice for me to then pursue design as a career.
When I am making a good meal, a product pieces together at the shop or making a drawing for an Interior Space I am designing for, it makes me HAPPY . I count making things as my super power, which I want to share as much as I can in this lifetime. Making is my way of giving back!
What I make
When I founded NPStudio, I wanted to make things, which is going to combine my experience from the field of Architecture and keep my love of crafts alive. Today through product line of HAPPYcardboards I make unique wall art for all ages and interiors. Each piece is hand assembled from recycled cardboard and a variety of reclaimed materials. We have also had a chance to take our methods of making with reclaimed cardboard to mainstream events and replace everyday pipe and drape stage backdrop with a backdrop made solely with recycled cardboard. We are now involved as a consultant for sustainable décor/fabrication for events and spaces.
