II. SOL STUDIO
Using the ancient Japanese techinque of Itajime Shibori or clamp resist dyeing is SOL STUDIO, a furniture design studio founded by Ritu Sharma that works extensively with solid wood. Their latest collection ‘amrich: LiFE - UNFOLD’ in collaboration with the clothing label Amrich is a way to blend traditional manufacturing techniques with artisanal talent and craftsmanship to create modern products. Using the resist dyeing technique which is applied to hard surfaces they are creating one-of-a- kind statement bespoke furniture pieces. They are also working with waste material sourced from workshops, experimenting with textures of wood and geometric patterns to create unique pieces that are sure to add character to your home and create a statement. Offering functional art in the form of bold statement pieces of furniture, theirs is a world of combining minimalism and maximalism in the best way possible.

III. White Studios
Creating seatings and tables that are functional yet aesthetically unique is White Studios, a furniture practice by Moradabad-based designer Gitesh Mehta. In an interview he revealed that all his pieces start from the idea, “How can it be entirely unique?” Inspired by the colour white as their name rightly suggests, they see white as being unique and pure. Thus their design philosophy too aligns with that and they try to create furniture and objects that will make your spaces beautiful while giving them a distinct artistic aesthetic. Inspired by the arts, that exist around us, they are always exploring materials and ways of merging arts with design. All their products are handmade and hence no two pieces are exactly the same.
