Studio Mumbai — an Indian architecture firm, releases a traditional furniture line that capitalizes on timeless design and pairs it with "unusual materials."

The capsule contains 14 silhouettes that are carefully handcrafted. Studio Mumbai creatively reinterprets the traditional connotations of a console table, a bench, a few chairs, a folding screen, a daybed, and a lamp. The designs are inspired globally and for materials, the firm utilized stone, textiles, brick, and glass, as well as some more daring elements like "Japanese washi paper, cow dung, and lime."

The traditional furniture line exuberates the relationship between the craftsperson and the piece that is being created. A focal point of that is the material that forms the silhouette, therefore, it isn't hard to imagine how the spotlight is set on the process.
