"Collaborative studio exploring softness in furniture and home objects"
Founded in 2019 by Indian designers Utharaa L Zacharias and Palaash Chaudhary, soft-geometry is a collaborative design studio creating collectible objects around central theme of softness.Their work intersects forming new, contemporary geometries, textures and transparencies, with slow and imperfect hand-worked techniques. Zacharias and Chaudhary often reference these ideas from the rich visual culture and hand-crafts of their hometowns in India,and derive opportunities to bridge traditional and modern ways of making and seeing.

How do your pieces come to life? Tell us one interesting thing about your creative process?

"We walk an hour together everyday. Our walk time conversations have often lead to our favorite ideas. It was never meant to be part of our design process, but it gives us a chance to break from the hustle and nervous excitement of the day and slow down into aimless conversation that luckily always takes us somewhere interesting."

Q&A

What is your favorite material to work with?

"This is hard because it changes almost daily, but if we had to pick one - then it would be cane - we both grew up in India and were always in awe of the speed and skill of craftswomen who wove cane. We are always thrilled that we learnt how to do it ourselves and take pride in increasing our speed by a little time every time we do it. While it is a long process, it is very satisfying and almost magical to see the lattice take shape with the pull of every strand of cane."
