Things are rocky at home. My house is upside down. We get on like a house on fire. I immediately related to the five pretty and witty watercolours that Francesco Clemente painted specially for our cover. Oh, how smug I was, that I finally understood art. From this moment on, I thought, I would no longer be confronted by questions, even by the difficult-to-decipher performance art of Nikhil Chopra, but would instead be instilled with instant intellectual critique. Or so I hoped. When Francesco sent his accompanying artist statement, it came in the form of an ancient Sanskrit text, and I was more clueless than ever. When pushed for more clarity, he emailed from New York (the watercolours were painted there, rather than at his Chennai studio), to explain that…

SHOLEEN DAMARWALA WRITER Sholeen Damarwala is a New York-based writer whose work has appeared in Al Jazeera, Interior Design Magazine, Vanity Fair Espana, and GQ. In this issue, she writes about the Art + Design Salon in New York, ‘Moulding Ideas’ (pg 88). “It was lovely to learn about how Fernando Casasempere, a Chilean artist, uses clay as a medium to narrate his love for his South American roots.” DISNEY DAVIS AND NITIN BARCHHA DESIGNERS For AD’s collaborative ‘The Frame Project’ (pg 100), founders of Material Immaterial, Disney Davis and Nitin Barchha chose to work with a neutral material to keep the focus on the art. “This was a very enjoyable project to design a frame as a prototype, especially because its so different when we’re doing multiples. FRANCESCO CLEMENTE ARTIST Francesco Clemente is a painter who studied…

Solid, hard concrete is given an almost fluid character in this collection of everyday objects by product designer Saif Faisal, founder of his eponymous design workshop. Perfect additions for the desk or dresser, the collection comprises the ‘Fibonacci’ trays and two ‘Extrude’ desk organizers, all made with high-strength concrete produced by Nuance Studio. “We deliberately introduced air bubbles during the production to bring about character in what is usually an opaque flat material,” says Faisal.…

When you walk into the 18,000-square-foot showroom of Thomas Goode & Co on Mayfair’s South Audley Street in London, you experience that archetypal moment of silence that comes from seeing something of breathtaking beauty and fascinating history. Founded in 1827, Thomas Goode has been crafting fine china and glassware for British (and Indian) royalty. It showed at the 1889 Great Exhibition in Paris, has been granted royal warrants by Queen Elizabeth II and the Prince of Wales, and there are tales of founder William Goode’s voyages across high seas to deliver to clients; a clientele that in later years included rock stars like Elton John, who is known to be an obsessive collector. That’s the kind of historic storytelling that serendipitously draws a Sabyasachi towards collaboration. And Johnny Sandelson, who took…

Designer Raghavendra Rathore took all of four years to complete Obeetee’s 2019 Proud To Be Indian collection that is set to be launched next month. (The brand has previously collaborated with designers Tarun Tahiliani and Abraham & Thakore as well for a line-up of creations expressed in their distinct sensibilities for the same collection.) In a world thriving on instant turnarounds, Rathore’s prolonged contemplation on design and material is a class act of defiance, even an unfaltering refusal to rush a labour of love. And this collection embodies all the old-world aesthetics and regal grandeur that’s been long familiar to Rathore, a member of Jodhpur’s royal family. Since 2015, Rathore and Obeetee’s design team have been devouring references on history, culture, architecture, embroidery and choice of colours favoured by royalty. One…
