SADLY, WE ANNOUNCE THAT NITIN BARCHHA AND TEAM HAVE HAD TO WITHDRAW DUE TO THE COVID IMPACT.
Nitin Barchha is a graduate from the University of Mumbai Academy of Architecture. In 2015, he founded Material Immaterial – a multi-disciplinary studio that explores the beauty of simple craft materials such as the ancient Indian craft of papier-mache, brass, wood, and concrete to create architecture inspired jewellery, functional design objects such as door handles and knobs, and architectural miniatures that invite the viewer into a world of space, light and volume.
All products are designed and built in the Material Immaterial studio in Mumbai. Each tactile piece is hand-crafted and unique with its own texture and appearance. Barchha’s approach is minimalist with a limited colour palette along the grey spectrum yet the works are defined by his attention to detail and the quality of the hand-finish. Passionate about the intersection of new technologies and craft processes, Barccha uses sophisticated CAD design programs and three-dimensional printing to create moulds that push the potential to hand-cast concrete with the minutest details and take up ever more challenging problems with each new project.
Material Immaterial products have been exhibited and sold in Singapore, New York, SanFrancisco and Chicago as well as Mumbai.
