Product Design

Studio Wodehouse X Bharat Floorings Pvt. Ltd In 2018 we embarked on our first product design collaboration with Bharat Floorings Pvt Ltd. Bharat Floorings specializes in creating floor and wall tiles from cement and over the years has successfully revived the yesteryear terrazzo tile trend.

The Shibori Tiles for Bharat Floorings were inspired by the forms, patterns and lines created by the unique process of Shibori from indigo dyes. This ancient Japanese form of textile dyeing was resurrected at the iconic tile maker’s factory. Studio Wodehouse dismantled the typical patterns into singular, more geometrical forms to create multiple designs for cement tiles. The tiles made use of bold “stamps” with relevance to contemporary designs and colour palettes. A neutral and pastel palette was selected to subdue the bold patterns, and allow for a soft yet ultra-modern expression on the floor canvas.

Textile Design

Drawing inspiration from the location of our inception, our firm was named Studio Wodehouse after our inherent philosophy to design and create spaces whilst also expanding our creative passion to furniture, textiles, products, lighting, among others.

While sourcing products for a particular project, we realised there was a dearth of options for chintz prints; colourful and subtle designs on simple materials like linen, cotton, velvet and mul.

This need was the driving force behind creating our exclusive, bespoke collection of Chintz upholstery and soft furnishings fabrics in collaboration with a Nainital-based textile designer.

Furniture Design

Inspired by the idea of a typical urban apartment, particularly one in Bombay, our team imagined the requirement of basic needs within the bedroom.

  • A TV
  • A desk or dresser
  • A space to hang clothes and store shoes and accessories
  • Additional storage space
  • Lighting
  • Ability to customize to personal tastes and style

The focus was to create a multipurpose yet minimalistic product. The unit incorporates integrated lighting to illuminate the room with customizations for fabric panels at the back to suit customer requirements. Each furniture module would be available to buy as separate add-ons allowing modularity for size, use and requirement. Drawing inspiration from the “Wendy house” toys of our childhood, this furniture piece can be assembled as a fixed unit on a wall, or as a room divider.
