Kona, New Delhi

Kona, New Delhi

These past few months I’ve enjoyed collaborating with clients, architects, and designers on projects; there’s so much to learn from each other’s ideas and the design process is immensely satisfying. Of course, the final result holds much more meaning. Most of the patterns I create, offer limitless possibilities and can be interpreted in diverse ways.

One of such projects that we’ve recently completed is a set of two special-order installations carved out of Cecelia Gold Limestone for a private residence in New Delhi, India.  Adaptations of the Kona, a part of Anoma’s Breathing Surfaces collection, the two installations are a celebration of pure geometry.

The first installation graces the façade of the house, almost like a wrap around the building. The very scale of the installation is staggering, creating a distinct identity for the building within its neighbourhood.

Created from a unique composition of intersecting straight lines, the patterns of the Kona highlight natural light and shadow throughout the day. The installation is backlit and emerges as a lantern in the urbanscape in the darkness of the evening.

The second installation is placed on the green terrace of the house. It adorns two adjacent walls, enclosing the entertainment space. It is two-sided, also forming a part of the elevation of the residence.

A combination of engraved patterns and jaali (traditional Indian stone screen work), the backlit installation is crafted through our unique work process that combines digital fabrication and hand craftsmanship.It presents a dynamic play of texture, dimensionality, and depth, on the surface of the stone.
