The New Delhi-based designer Aman Khanna creates beautiful, timeless pieces from clay—a material he describes as being both omnipresent and yet individual based on the way one uses it. This minimal bowl with its beautiful proportions celebrates a style that lives in peace with its own little imperfections. Handmade from stoneware clay, it is a piece with many uses: as part of a meal, to store fruit or simply as a sculpture.

A parat is an object traditionally used in India for a number of daily rituals, from collecting flowers for morning prayer to kneading dough. It has been beautifully re-invented in high-quality white Makrana marble that is almost translucent. Its proportions make it an extremely versatile and stylish piece for the home: use as a fruit bowl, a serving dish or simply an objet d’art. Crafted by hand and made entirely of marble, each piece is completely unique.

We wanted to create a first collection that reflected Indian traditionality but with a Dutch simplicity.READ THE STORY
We asked Somya and Bob if they would share their story with us:
We met three years back through common Studioilse friends and soon discovered our mutual love for materials, crafts & culture. So we started to plan ways of bringing together these elements.
Somya wanted to start the first collection from India, as she wanted to show me the hands on approach to design in India and watch me respond to it. After looking around for a while, she found the perfect small independent marble maker just outside Jaipur, Mr Jitendre. He was passionate and very excited about the thought of collaborating.
A few months later we went back to India to spend some time in Rajasthan, to observe people carrying on with their daily rituals, getting inspired by them. What we wanted was to have a first collection that reflected India but with a Dutch simplicity.
Thank you for your time Somya and Bob! We wish you much success with your beautiful brand!
