magicpin Delivers on Its Promise: Office Signage Transformed into ‘Mahipin’ as MS Dhoni and CSK Triumph in IPL Final

Brace yourselves for the epic transformation that just took place at magicpin – India’s first and largest hyperlocal startup headquarters in IFFCO Chowk at Gurugram. In a bold move, magicpin’s office signage has officially become ‘Mahipin’ to honor the incredible victory of the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the IPL final, led by none other than the mastermind Mahendra Singh Dhoni.


On May 29 when IPL fever was at its peak, magicpin, known for its quirky social media tactics, hit up Twitter with a cheeky challenge for all the fans out there. They boldly proclaimed that if CSK and their captain cool, MS Dhoni, could win the IPL trophy, their office signage would undergo a rad makeover to ‘Mahipin.’ The tweet went viral, capturing the attention of fans and cricket fanatics. As CSK emerged victorious, magicpin stuck to their words like glue and transformed their office signage into the legendary ‘Mahipin.’ It’s a sight to behold.


This is a follow-up campaign to the original tweet which captured the netizens attention on May 23, 2023 when magicpin changed their profile picture and name to “Mahipin” to celebrate Chennai Super Kings entry into the IPL final.  The tweet had captured 1 million impressions with over 44k engagement.

Storage Design Ideas Under Stairs for Small Spaces

If you’re having trouble finding extra storage space in your home, you might want to consider using the sometimes disregarded space under your stairs. You can turn this area into a practical and fashionable storage solution that makes the most of every square inch of your house by using imaginative and useful staircase under space design ideas. In this blog, we’ll look at some of the most creative and beautiful staircase storage design ideas that can reduce clutter and make your home feel more organised.

Simple and Practical Under Stairs Storage Solutions

1.    Design some Drawers:

If you are wondering how to use space under stairs, installing drawers below the steps is one of the most well-liked design concepts for stair storage. This is a great staircase storage design for anyone who wants to make the most of their storage space and hide clutter. It’s also a great option for anyone wanting to make their staircase more efficient while adding a touch of refinement.

2.              Turn it in a Library

If you are someone who loves to be surrounded by the beauty of books, then think of utilising the under-stair storage space by creating a library area over there. You can use an aesthetic small storage wooden wardrobe and place some of your favourite books.

3.              Create a Work Space :

If you work from home or simply need a quiet place to concentrate, think about setting up a workplace under your stairs. You may make this room into a comfortable and effective workspace where you can work quietly by adding some shelves, a desk, and lighting.

4.              Additional Toilet:

The area under the stairs can be the ideal option if you’re having trouble finding a location for a basement bathroom. With a little plumbing work and some creativity, you can turn this space into a convenient and fashionable toilet space for visitors.

5.              Decorate the Wall:

Consider adding some artwork or decorative items to the wall beneath your staircase if you’re searching for under-stairs storage ideas to give it some individuality. A stunning gallery wall, some shelves for your prized books or collectables, or even a statement piece of paint can be added to the room.


6.              Add a Mini-Bar:

If you enjoy hosting parties, you might want to consider converting the area under your stairs into a mini-bar. You may design an attractive and useful area for serving beverages to your guests with a bar below staircase, a few shelves, a few bar stools and some lights.

7.              Create Additional Seating Space:

If you don’t have enough seating in your living room, think about creating a comfortable lounging area under your stairs. You can create a peaceful area for reading, relaxing, or just hanging out with friends and family with a few cosy seats and some soft lighting.


Start by selecting cosy seating alternatives that fit the area under your stairs in order to create a welcoming and comfortable space. Think about your lighting selections as well as accents like pillows and blankets. Don’t forget to add cosy flooring, such as carpet or area rugs, to make the area comfy to walk on.

8.              Your Breakfast Nook:

A breakfast nook beneath the stairs can be the ideal answer if you have a small kitchen. A modest table, a couple of chairs, and some lighting can be used to create a cosy spot for your morning coffee and breakfast. This is a fantastic way to make the most of the space beneath your stairs while also giving your house a useful and fashionable addition.


To make the room feel cheery and inviting, think about utilising vibrant colours and amusing designs. To make the space feel cosier, you may also add some ornamental accents like wall art or plants.

9.              Create a Useful Closet:

Consider converting the area under your stairs into a walk-in closet if you’re having trouble finding room for your clothing or shoes. You may design a useful and fashionable closet that keeps your clothes arranged and accessible with a few hanging rods, shelves and drawers.

10.          Add Some Plants:

Consider placing some plants in a row under your staircase if you want to add some greenery to your house or want to create an indoor garden under stairs. A lovely and natural sanctuary can be made in your house by combining hanging plants, potted plants, and vases.


In conclusion, you don’t have to waste the area under your stairs. You can maximise every square inch of your living space in your house by implementing some of these Under stairs design ideas. The area under your staircase can easily be converted into anything you want it to be, whether you want to add storage, a fashionable design feature, or a comfortable seating area. To make your home more elegant and organised, become inventive and start utilising this frequently ignored space.

École Ducasse and ALMA create a unique training open to all on the fundamentals of French and Italian pastry-making

École Ducasse through the École Nationale Supérieure de Pâtisserie and ALMA, the leading Italian culinary arts school are combining their pastry expertise to offer a unique program for students wishing to learn the emblematic and fundamental techniques of the world’s two most famous pastry-making nations.

The first class of this distinctive two-month program will start on June 5, 2023. The first month of the Pastry Arts diploma will be taught in Yssingeaux, France at the École Nationale Supérieure de Pâtisserie, the leading French pastry school in the École Ducasse network, followed by one month at ALMA, the leading Italian culinary arts school, dedicated to Italian gastronomy and hospitality. The latter is based in Colorno, in the heart of the Food Valley at the gates of Parma and a city recognized by UNESCO for its creative gastronomy. This unique program will offer an immersion in the world of pastry through two countries unanimously acclaimed for their expertise in the pastry arts. Students will receive a joint degree from these two internationally renowned institutions.

This Pastry Arts diploma is an intensive program specially designed for students who wish to learn the basics of French and Italian pastry. Among many other subjects, students will learn about the classics of bread and viennoiseries, chocolate and confectionery, new trends in healthier pastry, artistic pieces, Italian ice cream and the creation of restaurant desserts.

In both schools, students will learn in small groups in a personalized and interactive manner. Ninety per cent of the students’ skill acquisition is done through hands-on learning workshops, which can be complemented by masterclasses given by renowned French and Italian chefs. Students will also benefit from state-of-the-art equipment, thus learning to work in a professional and contemporary environment. Finally, this very first class will have Luc Debove, Executive Pastry Chef, Meilleur Ouvrier de France and World Champion of Ice Cream as its French sponsor, while the Italian instructors will include Davide Comaschi, World Chocolate Master and Master of Art and Craft (MAM), an award given to the best Italian pastry chefs.

Matteo Berti, Educational Director, ALMA said: “We are delighted to be able to collaborate with École Ducasse in the development of a program that is unique in the world, bringing together the best of Italian and French expertise. This can only be a source of inspiration for all.”

Luc Debove, Executive Pastry Chef at École Ducasse and patron of the course, said: “During this two-month program, students will be able to acquire the subtleties of this profession on both a technical and artistic level.”
