Kirath Ghundoo is a Surface Pattern Designer based in the UK, specialising in designing wallpapers, fabrics and prints for surfaces across interiors, fashion and lifestyle products. Throughout lockdown 2020, Kirath introduced a new series of abstract original artworks and paintings, re-exploring her artsy side.
KG launched her first wallpaper collection ‘Mix ‘n’ Match 11’ at 100% Design, London in 2011 and since then has become a favourite of the design and interiors press both in the UK and internationally, with Living etc labelling her as "the queen of pretty geometrics."
She has worked on bespoke interior wallpaper and surface design projects worldwide from Mexico, Italy, Netherlands, USA to France. Her love for travel, culture, fashion and photography are reflected through her surface pattern designs for interior wallpaper and surface design projects.
The Mix ’n’ Match wallpapers iconic to her brand, disregard the rule book and encourage clients to have fun creating super cool feature walls of mismatched pattern and colour. Pushing boundaries to create original work, her designs are a fusion of all things KG!
Since launching the inventive nature behind Kirath’s wallpapers led to a shortlisted nomination for the Homes and Garden Young Designer of the Year 2012 alongside a nomination for the ELLE Decoration British Design Awards 2012. Nominated by Lee Broom, London Magazine graced her 'Rising Star of 2013'. Her wallpapers have achieved international recognition within major design press including ELLE Decoration worldwide, Mix, The Independent, The Observer and The Sunday Times to name a few.
