Maker Spotlight

soft-geometry

soft-geometry

San Jose. Established 2018.

soft-geometry is a collaborative design studio exploring opportunities for softness, slowness and intimacy, built with time and process, in furniture and home objects. Inspired in part by a shared aesthetic for pure geometries and in part by their ‘soft’ personalities, founder- designers Utharaa L Zacharias and Palaash Chaudhary built soft-geometry as an antithesis to the big, bold, fast and perfect. They aim instead at a sort of forever experiment with form, color and materials that bridges artisan crafts and handmade processes on one hand; and the forms, language and efficiency of modern manufacturing on the other.
