The Slido collection by Häfele features powerful sliding systems that meet all specifications for both industrial as well as residential spaces. Sliding doors were always the portal to any location, however, they have advanced that simplicity in modern times to be far more.
They can act as a partition between different areas of your home when needed and open up to merge spaces for large gatherings; similarly, in workplaces, they can act as a temporary divider where confidentiality is necessary and open up to create larger interactive spaces.
Fold 80 EF is the sliding folding device, whose door panels are folded and stored on each side of the entryway, giving this an interesting alternative for areas in which more wall space would be occupied by a standard sliding door.
Fold 80 EF enables to add a series of sliding panel combinations on each side with an overall load handling capability of 80 kg/track (2 or 4).
Whenever the doors are closed, these panels can be connected to allow an absolutely neat, flush design with the support of Häfele‘s camouflaged hinges. On opening the doors completely, the absence of the lower track in Fold 80 EF facilitates a seamless as well as continuous floor space.
Fold 80 EF is convenient, portable and preserves space as well as allows numerous door modifications!
The Sangam Tamil era, a rich amalgamation of culture and tradition was the root for the beautiful and geometric forms of Tamil Script, which now serves as the inspiration behind the exclusive Aayutha collection by Magari.
A Touch of Tradition Sample the origins of the historic stone-carving art from Mamallapuram, which create varying textures from granite stone to elevate the senses, with the Aayutha dining table. The low-seated dining table, crafted from solid granite, takes you back through the ages when our ancestors seated themselves on the ground in a demonstration of simplicity and togetherness. The minimalistic design and geometric aesthetics of this collection make it ideal for central placement in the room. So, gather your loved ones around for a unique home experience unlike any other.
Harmony of Materials While our ancestors primarily used stone and wood to craft furniture, the Aayutha collection pairs brass and other materials to add an exquisite flair and expand the visual aesthetic of these traditional art forms.
The low-seated Kelir chairs are a perfect example of this, complete with brass studs and discreetly hidden wheels to add that additional touch of comfort and ergonomics to a design so deeply rooted in tradition.
Seasoned Seaters Discover seating that has been designed by delicately balancing tradition with ergonomics to create an enamouring interior experience. The flawlessly handcrafted Kalvi armchair takes inspiration from Kelir, but offers a more ergonomic high-seated, upright design.
The Aaram armchair is perfect to lay back and catch up on all the reading you’ve been missing out on! Paired with the Aaram Ottoman, this comfortable armchair is versatile enough to blend in perfectly whether it be in your living room or study.
When you are uncorking that fine vintage at the end of a long day, just pour yourself a glass, swirl it around, and settle down on to the Aattam rocking chair, handcrafted from solid wood, and inlaid with brass for that touch of luxury.
Fabled Tables The Aayutha collection also brings you a selection of tables to meet your every need. The Kalai console table pairs a polished stone drawer with a robust wooden frame to hold your exquisite vase, display your fondest photographs, or just act as a discreetly elegant storage unit.
Look towards the Thunai side tables to elevate your bedroom aesthetic. The three-legged design pushes through the table surface with brass inlays to represent the triple-dotted Aayutha letter.
On days you choose to work from home, the Arivu study table walks the fine line between minimal yet functional design. It features removable storage and wooden trays for organizing your workspace, while the ergonomic footrest ensures your posture remains unaffected through long hours of work.
Is your living room feeling left out? The Mannai centre table carries forth the inspiration behind Aayutha to bring you a monolithic granite design with a contrasting stone finish!
Your Tastes, Exclusive Styles If you are looking for a dining table that is in harmony with a contemporary lifestyle, Magari has got you covered. The traditionally inspired Aayutha dining set is also available in a more contemporary, high-seating design option to ensure maximum comfort without losing touch with the inspiration behind the collection. Aptly named Suvai, meaning ‘Taste’, it comes with a choice of elegant brass or monolithic stone stands to match your tastes and truly stand out.
The versatile Aayutha collection is ideal for any home interior, with its geometric flow as well as the blend of stone and wood. The inspiration from the Tamil script runs deep in the collection. As the triple dotted letter accentuates the script, so does it accentuate the aesthetic of this collection, from the etching on the surface of the dining table to the brass inlays on the Thunai side tables. This brings the various pieces of the collection together to your home’s interiors in harmony.

The store consciously balances the old and the new, and blends nature’s bounty with art and crafts—no wonder then that every section proves to be an Instagrammable gem!
The design of Amit Aggarwal’s store is known for its inclusion of innovative textures, fabrics, translucency and reflections.

Designer Li Xiang creates an extraordinary ambience in this bookstore. A glass curtain wall embedded in its thick stone facade, which expands into a coffee area and the entrance. Walking in through the massive glass door, a fine grid book wall emerges and transforms the room. A plethora of seating arrangements are planned here to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Another architectural phenomenon occurs on the other side of the glass curtain. To emulate colossal rocks that are long-washed by rushing water, walnut and black-hued bookshelves converge. For a spellbinding effect, the designer blends the texture of rocks into the surface of the bookshelves. The bookcases are unevenly organised and the ceiling cabinets are spread, giving space for optical exploration. The design instantaneously draws its readers into the massive landscape paintings exhibiting Ningbo’s cultural legacy. The magnificent design of the space makes it a must feature on your Instagram feed!
This 10,000 sq ft property extends over four floors, each of which have their own distinct combinations of identity, layout and colour.

It varies from the subdued colours of the planters and railings to the vibrant colours of the arched entrance; the flamingo and banana leaf-patterned wallpaper to the neoclassical era abstract portraits; and the neo-classical period abstract portraits.

Designers Nahal Ahamed and Anas Mohammed of Artystry youthful and optimistic atmosphere is obvious in this open-plan workplace.

A splendid black-and-white space, contrasted with a vibrant yellow, makes up part of this skill development centre in Mumbai by Natasha Aggarwal. The monochromatic floors offer a discreet aura, full of texture and design, while the sunny hue masks pillars to generate a vivid, oriented area and introduce dimension and fluidity to spaces.
Ritu and Rajan Goregaokar have evoked a suburban experience by crafting relaxed seating for this Mumbai-based office. The space is flooded with vivid hues, smart bookshelves, sustainable and green facets, and a spectrum of earthen resources such as red brick, concrete and pine wood. Our favourite is the exceptional board and batten vintage piece with stainless steel pipes, which is seen right near the entrance!
For a setup that aims to add colour to the lives of children, it was obvious that their own headquarters would also be painted using the entire rainbow. Snehal Suthar and Bhadri Suthar have used colour minimally but skilfully. A basic grey and white layer is subtly enriched with green, blue and rust by upholstery and artwork. The walls and ceilings are illuminated by discreet and abstract designs. Perhaps, the most unique aspect is the vivid, matrix-like installation made of coloured pencils, which represents lively and multi-hued school life with playful and funky motifs.
Located in Gurugram, the project by Pierre Arnaud Cassin emulates the core and character of the food giant. A wooden geometric cove of multiple underlying features is the highlight of this office, where timber tracks the space from ceiling to floor—constructing lighting, benches, communal tables, storage facilities and concealed areas—in an unparalleled sense of realism. Fresh hues and vibrant layout represent the brilliance and ingenuity of the entire Nestlé community.
For their own studio in New Delhi, Urbanscape Architects chose a picturesque, earthy and quirky form of architectural design, established in a bustling and experimental atmosphere. The practice’s principal architect Dinesh Panwar created the interiors to be a catalogue of effortlessly evolving areas. These are interconnected by a stairway and even a bridge over floors. We love that the stairway is given another purpose—that of an open library that stretches across levels. Another detail is that the walls are accentuated with the help of Vibhor Sogani’s artworks.
SoCheers in Mumbai is a mosaic marvel designed by Kavan Shah. It aims to operate in a dynamic space that focuses on versatility (giving employees the opportunity to determine when and how they work). The unique office is vibrant, stimulating and cuts through the templates of rigid workplace design. Colour plays and combined textures establish an enriched and experimental ambience, while the rippling lawn and greens bring the outdoors in.
Aditya Agrawal and Navin Kejriwal of OCA India have crafted their Indore office such that each dimension is exquisitely crafted with soul, putting forth a vibe that is welcoming and pleasant. The teal-coloured ceiling imbues a contemporary vintage personality. It matches perfectly with the metalwork in the ceiling, the fin and arch partitions that break the continuity of the ceiling, and the murals painted on the wall, creating a therapeutic and reinvigorating illusion.
For Bombay Atelier‘s Farzin Adenwalla, 2020 was supposed to be a year of excitement with her first showcase at Salone Satellite in Milan. However, with production coming to a halt during the pandemic, Adenwalla didn’t wait for the next opportunity. In fact, she found inspiration unexpectedly.
Her conversations with craftspeople, vendors and artisans led to the realisation that while the past year hadn’t been easy on any one, the artisanal community was hit particularly hard. And that realisation resulted in the creation of something fun and extraordinary, something that would help karigars.
Adenwalla decided to fuse her love for desserts with happiness, excitement, nostalgia and design to incept The Kulfi Project. With fond memories of the dolce, the designer created special aluminium tables with terrazzo tops that replicated the swirls of flavoured kulfi perfectly! Bharat Floorings has extended its support to this initiative by creating the terrazzo tabletops using a unique blend of colours and aggregates.
“I started off by creating imaginary and playful worlds of these flavours, a place everyone could disappear into, even for a few moments. As the lockdown extended, small opportunities came knocking, allowing me to create prototypes and develop the table,” shares Adenwalla.
The creative launches The Classic Collection today with four “flavours”—iconic Rose, Pistachio, Saffron and Malai flavours. Most importantly in this “dessert meets design” initiative, 20 percent of the proceeds from the sales of The Classic Collection will be donated to Koftagrari, Kansa, Kandkari, Thathera, Bidriware and Naqqashi artisan communities.
“My main motivations were to get the design industry excited, to think of innovative ways of working with crafts and artisans in India, and to create an awareness of lesser-known metal artisan crafts in India. I researched their stories, their crafts, their histories and wanted to share these with a larger audience,” the creative says.
If you’re wondering, what’s next for The Kulfi Project, we have the answer! Adenwalla will soon be launching The Chef’s Collections under this initiative. It will include Michelin and other award-winning chefs from across the globe, whose signature kulfis are being turned into terrazzo tabletops! Stay tuned to see what the who’s who of the F&B world contributes!
