Furniture designer Aarti Aggarwal| Ar. Abin Chaudhuri’s Ballygunge magic |Design abstraction using old boats and more


Why do we have so many design festivals? So many product showcases? Something new unfolding almost every 30 hours, whether on local, domestic or international fronts. It is the need to congregate. The need to assimilate and participate in the niche sphere of activity that secures one’s knowledge base, feeds one’s idea-pot, fuels one’s passion...

For design transcends all hitherto tried and tested formulae – despite the déjà vu at one extreme and cutting-edge breakthrough at the other. Take for instance the 6 Ballygunge place that mixes influences to throw up a homely eatery, intriguing within one’s comfort zone. A similar principle applies to the furniture designed by Aarti Aggarwal, who makes one feel especially catered to with her attention to detail.

Thematic design wins hands down each time; testimony - the old boats as temporary shelters and the Vivarium project.

Discover the ingenuities for yourself...
