Nipa Doshi. Mumbai, 1971. Jonathan Levien. Scotland, 1972
The Camper stores designed by Doshi Levien are an ode to plural origins. The designers incorporate elements that add the energy of the Mediterranean to their particular cultural smorgasbord. These deceptively simple spaces invite visitors to discover the details. In each project, the authors' universal attitude captures the full essence of the Camper spirit.
About Doshi Levien
Doshi Levien is one of the most creative duos on the international scene. The two designers, though born and raised in very different settings, followed similar paths. Nipa Doshi studied at the National Institute of Design in Ahmadabad while Jonathan Levien was completing his BA at Bucks College in High Wycombe, and in 1995 their paths crossed at the Royal College of Art in London. Five years later they founded Doshi Levien in London, the studio that would catapult them to international design fame.
