Ceramists + Designers: Bertozzi & Casoni @ Dilmos
Master craftsmen and Italian ceramists Giampaolo Bertozzi and Stefano Dal Monte Casoni’s work show tradition and experimentation, link to the past and present along an axis.
And perhaps link between continents as well!
I just plain am biased towards this side board because it is named ‘Govinda’ and it is so beautiful. Govinda is another name of the Hindu god Krishna. Govinda also means – ‘giving the nectar of satisfaction to the senses’. (whatever that means 🙂 )

Love this Bertozzi & Casoni table also. Somehow I am getting a feeling that mother nature is present here!!
He has a degree in science but he is into designing, architecture and interiors. Pinakin Patel, is one of the Indian designers who has blended Indian sensibilities and modern lines with understated elegance.

I like Doshi-Levien team because they put traditional Indian lifestyle into international arena. They also add their own subtle modern changes to each design they put forward.
Charpoy or as pronounced in Hindi ‘charpai’ or called ‘khat/khatia’ is latest from them.
Let us see charpoy in past and present perspective.
A traditional charpoy is woven with rope (sutli) made of a particular plant.
The rope bites a little into the skin so people sometimes upholster the charpoy with colourful clothes.
This is still a common site in Indian villages.

Ah bliss! This is one of my favourite nook.
