Arjun Rathi Design — Mumbai, India

"Our designs look to experiment with materials and challenge processes that find application on commercial projects. We don’t tend to stick to a single style,favourite material or formula, but consider designas a craft, where deep understanding of materials, processes and user behavior serve as a knot. We try to bring a sense of simplicity, functionality andelegance to our work."

Arjun Rathi started his design practice in 2011; architectural commissions were difficult to come by, hence he expanded to the para-architectural fields of furniture and products with the underlying concept of 'functional art 'in mind. Working at both ends of the design spectrum, from single pieces made together with craftsmen to mass produced objects developed in collaboration with manufacturers, the studio is not defined by a particular style, but rather by questioning objects while considering their context and cultural associations embedded in them. They take inspiration from everyday things, which by a simple twist, become something unexpected.
