Editor’s pick

Moody Blooms by artist, designer and former EDIDA India Designer of the Year Alex Davis are life-sized, sculptural works that convey the iridescence of Himalayan irises. This series of stainless steel installations traverses the colour palette—going from dusky mauve to deep plum, inky indigo to an intense purple. The transparent pigments retain the natural luminescence of steel, lending the organic floral forms an ethereal quality. Four of these limited edition pieces are being showcased as part of Lokame Tharavadu (The world is one family), an exhibition organised by Kochi Biennale Foundation and curated by Bose Krishnamachari.

Oval the moon

To pay an ode to Indian artisans, Orvi Surfaces recently collaborated with iconic creatives in the country. One of our favourites is the Aurae Table by father-daughter duo Jimmy and Pearl Mistry, whose carved marble top is inlaid with coloured glass that’s shattered and then reassembled to achieve a glass mosaic effect seen in Europe’s medieval churches and cathedrals.

Perhaps one of the best accessories to invest in during this balmy season is the luxurious Earth Line collection of towels by Etisha Collective. These are made using tightly woven, 100 per cent GOTS certified organic cotton and a fringe-tying method. Interestingly, the 17th-century technique employed in the making blends 26 colours to produce a modern, harmonious look. Website:

A washbasin from the White Tulip series by Philippe Starck

At the recently concluded, digital edition of Duravit Design Days, the bathware giant unveiled two collections: The D-Neo range designed by Antwerp based Bertrand Lejoly, and the White Tulip series by the iconic French creative Philippe Starck. “D-Neo offers four variants—Minimal, Monochrome, Boho and Pop,” says Asutosh Shah, MD of Duravit India, “Meanwhile, expressive and timeless with high-class workmanship and cutting edge technologies best describes the White Tulip series.” Adding to this observation, Starck shares, “It gets its name from the oral muse; it is sophisticated, ergonomic and, above all, delicately designed and produced.” Website:
