Viorel and Nishant are founders of Dharatal, an Indo - European design collective with a focus on local communities, their heritage and landscapes. The atelier was established in 2016 and embarked upon a diverse range of work, from design to policy making to speculative research projects.

He is the founder of Dharatal Belgium office, a Romanian-Belgian architectural designer, sculptor and painter. His design language is derivative of state of art technology using ray tracing and 3D modelling knowledge combined with a good understanding of parametric design in cultural context. His passion lies in the details and perfection, with an expertise in visual language and a skillful eye for proportions and a sensitive use of material for designs and he is presently heading the Belgian office of Dharatal.
