Bent Chair and Shivan & Narresh team up for new line of art furniture
The collection has a modernist organic taste along with refined tribal influences from the Shivan & Narresh Patu Series.
Bent Chair, India’s leading e-tailer home décor and furniture brand led by Natasha Jain and Neeraj Jain, announced their latest collaboration with Shivan & Narresh, India's first luxury holiday brand, to curate a new range of art furniture. Envisaged for modern homes delineating an immaculate sense of style, the collection demonstrates a modernist organic taste running in tandem with its refined tribal influences from the Shivan & Narresh Patu Series.
With a singular vision to bring collective passions for design and art together, the collaboration captures elements from the vibrant flora and fauna of the dynamic Indian geography and illustrates them in a detailed spatial design. The Patu Series with its strong influence of Dravidian Gond art and Andhra’s Tholu Bomalatta were taken forward to form art prints named Fagun & Koi Coal which in turn became starting points for this collection to derive elements from them. An element each was taken from these signature Shivan & Narresh prints to derive a form for a new furniture as a piece of art.
The Shivan & Narresh X Bent Chair Living Room is designed for an urban home and features 13 products, comprising The Husk sofa, Brute sofa chair, Tusker Table, Ebony Ash Console, Tangerine Stool, side tables Cinnamon, Greige & Salmon, an Udder Bench, Fagun & IconoEye Cushions and the IconoEye Rug.
Commenting on the partnership Neeraj Jain, co-founder, Bent Chair, said, “Shivan & Narresh bring freshness to furniture design, making us push boundaries in an attemot to translate their vision into a relaity.” Natasha Jain, CEO & co-founder, Bent Chair, added, “It’s been really exciting collaborating with Shivan and Narresh as they share the same quirky design outlook as Bent Chair. Their designs have added a new dimension to the Bent Chair products and we can’t wait for this line to unfold.”
Narresh Kukreja, creative director, Shivan & Narresh, further added, “Furniture art is an inventive realm of spatial design that involves multi-layered treatment: from its inception at the drawing board to its implementation of the finished, tangible form. With an ongoing pursuit of modern elegance, it is essential for the designer to envelope personal taste while reinventing aesthetics of design.”
“With Fagun, Koi and Koi Coal being the prints of major influence, finer tribal nuances contribute to the design structure and form, thus modelling the aesthetic bedrock of the collaboration. With our print DNA as the crux of form derivation, each product has been designed keeping comfort and urban luxe beauty in mind,” said Shivan Bhatiya, head designer, Shivan & Narresh.
The collection will soon add a bedroom and a dining range, and is available for purchase at all Bent Chair stores (Delhi & Gurgaon), franchise stores and the official Bent Chair website.
