Ayush Kasliwal is a furniture design graduate from National Institute of Design Ahmedabad, the premier design institute in India. Ayush's design studio AKFD is committed to development of ideas using local crafts that have evolved over centuries. His work represents a fusion of unique creativity and uncompromising integrity rare to find in the highly competitive world market.
Kasliwal explains: ”Products have their own eco-system. They carry with them their history - as in how and where they are made, and their future - as in where they will go to. Mater is one of the few to recognise this, and to engage, in a positive manner with these eco systems".
