Her partner Sunnaeya Kapur controls the lighting and helps you pair food with alcohol and crockery, and for bigger dos, with waiters and bartenders. They also offer non pre-plated Indian and Continental food.

Thus was born Artfeat, under which he fits digital clocks into old ammunition carriers, morphs door latches into paperweights, turns rakes into wine holders. He also works with home and corporate interiors, and recently refitted an office using water pipes as decoration, which he compares to Lego. Block party!
When: You need a pied pipe-r.
