Myth and Material: Modern Furniture Meets Indian Culture
The Moroso/Maharam showroom in NYC has brought together two London-based designers for a show of new furniture and fabric designs inspired by Indian culture and Italian craftsmanship. The fabrics and seating collection is the work of Nipa Doshi and Jonathan Levien who contributed distinct yet complimentary approaches to design. Nipa draws strong influence from native Indian visual culture. Jonathan offers an industrial design process. The resulting work merges a cultural perspective, and storytelling with modern manufacturing and high tech materials.
