Sanghamitra stepped into the design field while pursuing her Bachelor’s degree in Furniture and Interior Design from the National Institute of Design in Ahmedabad, India. While practicing in India, she ventured into the world of lighting during her student exchange program in Germany. She was fascinated by their design language and how it followed and incorporated light in their architecture. To seek her new interest, she went to Parsons School of Design and received her MFA in Lighting Design in the spring of 2021. Her admiration towards color and its interplay with light and shadow drives her work.
Over the years spent at Parsons and while interning at L’Observatoire International she developed various skills related to leadership and professionalism. At Cooley Monato Studio, she continues to support our team with lighting layouts, fixture research, and calculations, among other tasks in her growing skillset.
