Ekant Singh, Founder & CEO – Page 2813 talks about new trends in sustainable furniture design

What practices can ensure demanding styling and furniture design adhere to sustainability?

There is growing evidence that sustainable furniture can help mitigate climate change and reduce the linear consumption of existing goods. Long-lasting furniture made with sustainable materials helps conserve the planet’s limited supply of raw materials. Standard sustainable practices include choosing materials like Burmese teak, known for its resilience and ability to retain its form and carbon-neutral hardwoods like ash and oak. These woods will always be in style and can be incorporated into various designs and aesthetics. An elegant and refined touch can be added to furniture made from Burma Teak, often known as BTC wood, which is one of the world’s finest and most durable woods.

It is often limited to how pleasing it seems to your senses, especially sight. How do you take both aesthetics and functionality along?

Any design, including interior design, must consider both practicality and aesthetics. Complications develop when one of these two factors is prioritised over the other. The success of a project depends on the design’s ability to hold the attention of its audience. The ideal home and lifestyle incorporate elegance and sophistication.

Detailed design is all about size, shape, material, and tolerances. How do you think furniture plays a vital role in interiors?

One can have the most impressive interior and façade designs if one invests in high-quality furniture. However, this could be a problem if the furniture is not properly arranged. That completely undermines the point of design in the first place. Given that the primary goal of interior design is the formation of surroundings, furniture naturally plays a pivotal role in it. When it comes to putting a concept into practice, nothing is more important than the furniture that will be used to make the space work for its intended purpose.

Furniture Designing is all about curating comfort and style; according to you, what is a “good” design?

Incorporating ergonomic principles and suitable foaming, cushioning, and colour schemes into a design helps bring everything together, making it look good. The ratio of objects in a room can be directly affected by ergonomics. According to ergonomics, spaces, whether at home or in the office, should be arranged and built as per the needs of the people. This means that ergonomics aims to design equipment and settings that foster maximum productivity and contentment on the end user’s part. Colour, cushioning, and foam are all critical elements in home décor. They are also the simplest approach to generating a strong visual effect in a space because of their power to change people’s feelings.

 Which materials do you prefer the most, which are energy efficient and resemble the modern look and feel of your interior styling?

I favour eco-friendly, lightweight options to avoid unnecessary weight and environmental impact: easy-care or dry-clean-only fabric. Timbers like ash and oak look not only great but also last forever. I’m more inclined toward designs that are both eco-friendly and go parallel with today’s aesthetic trends. I prioritise genuine leather upholstery, cotton or raw silk curtains, and little usage of steel, gold, and other metals and colour tones.
