Aurovilians Guy Dinet, executive of 'Radiance', and Marie Claire Barsotti, designer, are both French and have been working together since 1996.
When they met in Auroville that year, Guy was
manufacturing paper lamps for famous French designers Tse-Tse in Paris,
while Marie-Claire had opened a design gallery 'Elements' in 'Le Marais',
also in Paris. There she displayed products designed by her and her
associate Cedric Troadec which were mainly manufactured in India.
In 1998, in collaboration with Mr. Ananda, architect
from 'Auroform' (Pondicherry), Radiance developed a new activity: interior
decoration in apartments, houses and castles in different Indian cities.
Keeping local skills alive
Radiance is now planning to develop the enterprise by exporting these items. In their gradually expanding field of activity, the team remains loyal to its original principle and concern: to keep local traditional skills and techniques alive, adapting them to modern design.
N.B Guarantee is given that no child labour is involved in the manufacture of Radiance's products.
