Amalgam uses the craft of inlay in coloured and composite stone, precious and semi-precious stone and wood to create a blend of traditional and modernity. Using craft as a means to achieve unison of function and aesthetic, amalgam has redefined the blend of colour and pattern
in the contemporary Indian modern aesthetic to produce furniture and accessories. Combining the tactility of precious, semi-precious and composite stones with the waning craft of inlay, amalgam emphasises design as a customized craft.
At amalgam, design is viewed as a holistic experience; where, from spatial mediation, to lifestyle and accessory design, every product is viewed as unison
of function and aesthetic,
of tradition and modernity,
of style and utility,
of colour and pattern,
of technique and retro style,
redefining the contemporary Indian modern aesthetic.
