Varrun is an interior and furniture designer who resides in New Delhi. He is director of MOVA1 Studio, based out of Gurgaon.
Talking about his latest furniture design series ‘The Barasingha collection’, he says “The furniture of the barasingha collection expresses the primal desires and fears associated with forest life.”
Reflected in the form of each piece is the essence of delicacy, the intelligence, the poise and organic force found in the flora and fauna of the forest.
About self he adds “My interest in Design is particularly informed by a consciousness of the way interior environments influence human experience. I am always aware of how a meticulous design selection can promote and support spaces for harmonious interaction. This awareness is what motivates my practice.”
Varrun’s multidimensional approach is visible in his designs and is naturally inclined towards liberal arts, which he attributes to his family of art historians, artists and writers.
In his short span as a working designer, he has conceptualized and fabricated spaces ranging from residential homes and apartments, corporate offices and labs, hotel and spa getaways, and premier apparel and home furnishing retailers.
