When visiting Istanbul, VitrA’s physical and spiritual home, Lovegrove immersed himself in Turkish ceramic culture and drew inspiration from the diverse ethnicity, architecture and custom of the region to bring an additional perspective. He studied Ottoman geometries and calligraphy, which are graphic and yet liquid, organic and highly sensual. These two-dimensional applications were morphed to create surface patterns for printed products and for milling panels and screens, thus leading to the creation of this stunning collection of Istanbul.

RBI comments from K Raheja Corp and Prajapati Constructions

“The repo rate cut by RBI is a step in the right direction. Although there were higher expectations of the cut, this is certainly good news for developers as well as buyers.  It is also encouraging to hear that going forward, the central bank’s policies will remain accommodative. We hope the banks will pass on the benefit to the industry.” – Kishore Bhatija, Managing Director – Real Estate Development, K Raheja Corp

The repo rate cut of 25 bps by RBI is a welcome move, but the developer community was expecting a bit more, said Rajesh Prajapti, Managing Director of leading realty developer Prajapati Constrictions.

“It would have been much more beneficial had the RBI reduced the repo rate by 50 bps, which in turn would have facilitated the banks to further reduce the rate of interest,” he said.

Mr. Prajapati expressed the hope that hopes that the National housing Bank , PSU banks as well as Pvt banks will reciprocate by reducing its rate of interest to ensure lower EMIS on loans.
