Vakr is the story of the synthesis of old and new techniques to generate timeless furniture designs. Sculptural in character, the form is guided by the laws of physics and the nature of the materials. A new furniture series by Vakr: ‘Lehar’ is inspired by the shape and form of flexible membranes and structures; when weight or pressure is applied on them. It is a re-interpretation of how the form yields, morphing the structure to reach a stable point. Vakr breaks conventional furniture stereotypes by Exploring Concrete, Rattan, and Wood in an unusual amalgamation.
The Dravam collection is a collaborative journey between designer and artisan looking to re-imagine their Indian heritage. Through the expertise of various artisans, Vakr Studio endeavours to re-imagine specific traditional disciplines that embody centuries-old knowledge passed on from one generation to another. Each furniture piece in the series evokes an emotional impact embedded within its functionality. With engraving experts, wood artisans, and specialised painters, a unique design vocabulary emerges, pushing our understanding of modernity to meet centuries-old cultural histories.
Vakr is a Delhi based experimental furniture studio established by Devyani Gupta & Nehit Vij. Vakr denotes the steep learning curve associated with designing, through material and technique explorations - a process that requires numerous iterations and adept craftsmanship.
