at the milan furniture fair

Posted in 1, Designed by unliked on May 6, 2013

So after years of watching fancy slideshows of it on design blogs, I finally got on to that flight to the Salone Internazionale del Mobile aka the Milan Furniture Fair. We showed two stool prototypes as part of the exhibit of our friend and designer Rohit Kumar – who was selected to present his work within the Salone Satellite 2013, the young designers section of the fair.

This is not the first time we’ve been a part of the Milan fair though. In 2008, we were one of the winners of the GAS World Flag design competition and our t-shirt ‘Flutter’ was on show at Superstudio Piu, Via Tortona during the Salone. The stools we designed are based on the Banaras story we’ve been working on for sometime now – trying to capture in a small yet significant way the soul of a city we love so much.

Big credits to our friend and designer Pankaj Narain who helped us get these products to life and to Rohit, without whom this trip would not have been as exciting as it was.

the 35/20 table

We designed this table especially for the designXdesign exhibition in February and fell in love with it. To make it real, a CNC router behaved itself, obeyed our digital commands via an EPS file and gently though noisily caressed a panel of 10mm PVC foamboard into the shapes we needed – which of-course interlocked into each other and formed what we now call the 35/20 table. A flat pack treat!
