From the start my artistic endeavours have allowed me to follow my passion for arts and I furthered it professionally by pursuing a course in Applied Arts from the J.J. School of Arts.
Post the completion of my course I started designing my new house; for which I wanted to create a plush new lounge atmosphere.
After going through the designs available in the market, I realised there is a need for a new textured decor. That led me to creating furniture from corrugated paper sheets. After a lot of experimentation with designs and colours, I was able to create a beautiful unique look for my lounge. The appreciation that I received, inspired me to take it up on a bigger scale and this became the root of Sylvn Studio.
At Sylvn Studio, we specialise in designing eco-friendly, handcrafted lamps, furniture and home decor items. I craft my products using recycled material which are hand painted to give them a unique texture.
Starting with the lamps the Rondeur table lamp has a unique design; the subtle bend in its structure scatters an enchanting pattern of light across the wall.
The name of my studio Sylvn has been derived from Sylvanus, the God of the forest as per Roman mythology. It was but natural for me to include some designs inspired by Roman architecture.
The Colosseum table lamp is one such example: a perfect synthesis of innovation and history at play, the asymmetric blocks emit a beautiful texture to the wall when lit and create an aura of brilliance and splendour. A larger version, the Colosseum floor lamp takes us back to the days of the gladiators. The non-uniform and natural structure represents the uniqueness of the art emanating a sense of antiquity.
If Colosseum is reminiscent of the gladiators, the Sonsie brown floor lamp ignites an aura of temptation. The curvaceous and amorous body of this floor lamp is reminiscent of Hollywood heroines of the yesteryear. The dazzling patterns of light that it dissipates on the walls and floors recreates the scenario of a diva dressed in a black gown walking down the red carpet amidst the flashes of paparazzi’s cameras.
In other lamps too I have taken into account the beautiful caricature created by the reflection of the unique designs, two lamps Lattice and Loop are perhaps the best testimony to prove the point.
The Loop is a pendant lamp which quickly changes the character of a small space into a larger area whereas the Lattice lamp has a cuboid structure. Made from strips of corrugated paper and overlaid in a regular pattern the design forms windows in between to cast beautiful light patterns all across.
With furniture pieces too, I have been experimental. The first product that comes to my mind is Diva-N, made from a block of cardboard sheets this two piece sofa set is not just irresistibly sexy, but also a head turner and a show stopper. Whereas Settee an elegant bench made from the same material is capable of transforming the look of any place be it office, lounge or home.
You won’t be able to hide your smirk as you watch your guests thinking twice before carefully resting their bottoms on it. However it’s sturdy enough to seat an elephant.
I really feel proud every time when people come and appreciate my work thanking my eco-conscious efforts. A lot of heart goes into developing each of these products, qualitatively. To top it all, the carbon footprint of these products is negligible.
My aim is to continue creating beautiful visual experiences in varied spaces such as homes, restaurants, lobbies and business centres; and with the response and feedback I have received till date, I am confident that I can take Sylvn Studio to newer heights.
