Inception and Innovation:

Kaashni's journey began in 2016, driven by a passion for innovation and a commitment to delivering top-quality aluminum products. As a major distributor of Indaux hardware, Kaashni embarked on a mission to redefine architectural hardware.

From its inception, the company has been at the forefront of integrating traditional wisdom with cutting-edge technology, with a particular emphasis on the often-overlooked but crucial element of lighting.

Step into the exclusive showroom experience at Pearl Concept, where lighting isn't just functional; it's an integral part of the design narrative. Beyond conventional hardware displays, Kaashni's showroom showcases lighting solutions that complement and elevate the curated collections. The interplay of light and form at Pearl Concept adds a layer of sophistication, inviting homeowners, interior designers, and architects to reimagine spaces through the lens of illumination.


The Role of Lighting in Ancient Indian Home Interiors:

In ancient Indian home interiors, lighting went beyond mere functionality; it was a symbol of spiritual significance and aesthetic sensibility. The principles of Vastu Shastra, the ancient Indian architectural science, emphasized the importance of natural light and strategically placed artificial lighting to create a harmonious and balanced living environment.

  • Oil Lamps and Diyas: In ancient times, oil lamps and diyas (clay lamps) were essential elements of home lighting. Their warm glow not only illuminated spaces but also created an atmosphere of tranquility and spirituality. Kaashni pays homage to these traditions by incorporating warm-toned lighting solutions in its collections, fostering a sense of peace and connection.

  • Skylights and Courtyards: Ancient Indian homes often featured skylights and open courtyards to maximize natural light. Kaashni draws inspiration from these architectural elements, offering hardware solutions that allow for optimal natural light flow. This not only enhances the visual appeal of spaces but also aligns with modern sustainability practices.

  • Color Temperature and Ambiance: Ancient Indian interiors recognized the impact of different color temperatures on mood and ambiance. Warm lighting was preferred for spaces of relaxation and worship, while cooler tones were used in workspaces. Kaashni's lighting solutions offer a range of color temperatures, allowing homeowners and designers to tailor the ambiance to their specific needs.


Partiglass: Transformative Lighting in Modern Spaces:

Venture into the world of Partiglass, Kaashni's collaboration with Ambica Aluminium. This innovative glass partition solution not only embraces modern aesthetics but also enhances the play of natural and artificial light in spaces. Partiglass allows light to dance through interiors, creating dynamic and visually stunning environments. Its success in iconic projects like Bengaluru Airport TERMINAL 2, Good Earth Malhar, and Hyatt Centric showcases the transformative power of lighting in shaping contemporary spaces.

Lighting is considered a crucial element in creating environments that not only look beautiful but also feel inviting and harmonious.
