Vihara is an old buddhist sanskrit word that means contemplative garden. Vihara Innovation Network is the new name for Centre for Knowledge Societies, a research and design firm which was established in 2002.
Our work involves field research, insights generation, reflection and dialogue. Through the application of design methods we help bring more elegant, workable and resilient solutions to life.
We are a meaning driven company, and this drive has led us to work on issues such as child mortality, early grade reading, vaccine delivery in rural India, using blockchain for impact, decoding the future of mobile technology and many more. We are forever keen to explore any areas of work where we can create value using our expertise in user centered design.
