The Future Of Design
Explore & Enjoy!!!



T FOD is a virtual platform for end-users to search and source design ideas, artworks, art and design professionals, products and services. It is conceived as a professional networking portal for the design and allied fraternity. Poised to become a single window facilitator in organizing, designing and executing all construction, architecture, interior, design and art related needs, The Future of Design aims to carry the concept of good design across all strata of society.

By giving a platform for interaction between the designer fraternity and manufacturers and suppliers of material and products, consultants, service providers, artists, students and end-users, TFOD will provide at a click of a button, brilliant décor ideas, interesting design discussions, information about and access to people, their work as well as products!

Started as an interactive community, TFOD has grown to become India's leading art and design portal with 100% original profiles and more than 4 million hits per month. From being a successful Brand of IMAP Systems Pvt Ltd. it has now evolved into a full-fledged company which goes by the name of TFOD Lifestyles Pvt. Ltd. The success of TFOD and industry feedback has encouraged us to initiate an online selling platform - so watch out for updates!


Creation is the result of people with different skills coming together to implement a concept. The concept of TFOD was thus shaped and executed by a talented team of young professionals. The Future of Design™ was created to foster an environment for the melding of diverse personalities, passions, ideas and ideologies. The TFOD mantras – 'Inspiring Ideas' and 'Informative Interactive Inclusive' and 'Connect, Share & Spread' – encapsulate the fundamental need for its creation.

TFOD Gallery

The show-stopper of The Future of Design™ the Photo Galleries (of Design, Art and Allied Professionals & Contractors) will feed design and decor ideas to the masses. In the effort to promote the awareness of 'good design', TeamTFOD moderates the content uploaded by the professionals and handpicks images/ideas to be reflected in the Photo Galleries! Images in the Gallery may be "Liked" (as in 'endorsing' the work of the artist/designer/allied professional) or "Style-Filed" (as in 'filing' an idea in a scrap-book for future reference)!

TFOD Gurus – Support & Strength

TFOD Gurus – Support & Strength

The Future of Design, positioned to change the way we ‘think’ design is incomplete without those practicing design professionals and artists who are at the helm now; or the veterans who have made indelible impressions on the scene.

Keeping this in mind and counting on their support to our dream, we have invited several extremely talented, successful and dynamic professionals to support TFOD. They would be invited to write Guest Columns on TFOD and share their views and opinions on a variety of issues across the spectrum of design. They will also guide the process of building up the editorial content of TFOD, of suggesting and anchoring design discussions, and lots more!

Among the first few architects and designers to bless the initiative are the ever-supportive Hafeez Contractor, Sanjay Puri, Rajesh Patel, Shirish Sukhatme and Sonali Shah.

Ar. Sanjay Puri was the first architect to create a Profile on and upload images of his Projects on TFOD and he has also written the first guest column 'My Page'!
