As India witnessed the rise of disposable income in urban communities, the demand for luxury homes, themed villas, and customized interiors has increased to prominence. With this growth, increased demand has arrived, for not just qualified architects but also reputed ones. Especially in a country like India, the constant demand for creative architects, and engineers coupled with technical expertise has paved way for a new market. Few selected designers are regarded masterful in the industry and have already established a brand for them.

Abhinav Goyal is one such seasoned professional who is disrupting the sector with his niche finesse. In 2016, he established Formforge, which specializes in custom design and fabrication of complex and technically challenging projects in the field of art and design. His primary motivation has been to create soulful and interesting objects that embrace and celebrate the complexities of the real world.

Abhinav Goyal engages in an exclusive interview with CEO Insights, uncovering more about his professional traits and Form forge's unique proposition.

Give a brief account of your professional journey.
I have always had this idea to usher some thing distinct into this world. Being an architect, each of the companies I had worked in enhanced the overall growth of my learnings. Within each company, the independent lead design role, with dependency on completions before the preliminary deadlines, has helped to build on my knowledge tremendously. I have always focused on the bigger picture. The enthusiasm of giving something new to the already brimming architecture industry was a tough challenge and gave me the required zeal to enter the art and design field. The only way to stand out from the crowd was by ensuring a terrific bounce of newness. Keeping the fundamentals in place, till date our
approach has been towards problem solving in the best possible and most comfortable way for our clients. Strategies for success have inculcated leadership ideologies in me, and with each passing day, the focus has only been on innovations setting us apart from the rest.

Tell us about your leadership approach and success mantra.
Relationship building is one of my biggest considerations. Constant perseverance, strong communication, and negotiation skills are the qualities I have manifested. Being an introvert, I had always focused on improving my weaknesses through learning. I did realize that thriving and paying special attention to areas of weakness would yield the greatest return on my investment.

The willingness to stick with a bold course of action, an unconventional business strategy, a one-of-a-kind product development roadmap, and a contentious marketing campaign even when the rest of the world wonders why you are not marching in lockstep with the status quo have been my true mark. Imparting the same amount of empathy, discipline, and education further I have firmly believed that fostering a learning culture is essential to our success.

Define Formforge as an organization and its position in the market.
Formforge is dedicated to exhibiting works that pushes the boundaries of conventional art forms and combine modern technology with traditional techniques. Created for the niche, these artworks are a complex amalgamation of ideas that were created using advanced design tools and human craftsmanship, giving them the final form, and making them unique and exquisite by exploring new avenues of expression. The Formforge collection is a reflection of exclusivity and timelessness, driven by the vision to ‘design, re-invent, and inspire’.

Our visual style created a stir in the market, and the new collection launch continues to do so. Unlike volumes, we have focused on a few pieces each season, providing the
best qualities and finishes. A validation transpired when our designs were displayed in the India Design ID exhibition in 2020, and appreciated by numerous visitors, the show was a hit.

With each passing day, we hope to inspire a new generation of creatives and foster a community that values the unexpected and celebrates innovation.

What is your anticipation regarding the future changes in the market and how do you plan to help the company prosper?
