Aakriti Kumar gives old and discarded wood a new lease of life with her furniture and lighting brand Differniture
Can wooden furniture be sustainable? Delhi-based furniture designer Aakriti Kumar, who is hosting an exhibition in the Capital, says yes. The Parsons School of Design alum’s furniture brand Differniture uses sustainable materials to create sculptural designs. Think hexagonal-top tables, wooden upholstered sofas and geometric accent pieces. “I want my designs to incorporate form and function in equal respect," says Kumar. “I also ensure eco-friendliness, be it in the materials or processes."
