Product and furniture studio, KNOCK ON WOOD (KNW) founded by Aarti Aggarwal celebrates wood in its purest form...

This fashionable journey of wood from nature to residential spaces is discerningly chiselled to combine suitability, design, function and aesthetics in the KNW portfolio.

Uncompromisingly bringing out the natural beauty of granular wood, she carves solid logs into sturdy aesthetically resplendent pieces – benches, side tables, centre table ensembles, trolleys, beds and the like, her designs standing out starkly against any backdrop – classic or contemporary.

While strong angles and clean lines spell minimalist modern, a touch of jaali work, an unusual combination (wood with rusted MS), a pastiche of reclaimed wood, an exaggerated form… lend a distinguished identity to each piece. That Indian-ness is part of every design is established spot on as cultural overtures inhabit pieces – not blatantly, but subtly as leaf motifs, soft curves, metal framework, inlay or as discerning pieces of art.

Her strong design sensibility articulates her international exposure and innate love for Indian art and culture. A wide variety of arty thrones, rocking chairs, writing tables and other such forgotten pieces form an integral part of KNW collections, where stress testing and working with assorted materials and finishes with wood is part of the KNW R&D Lab.

Functionality romances art here and this is the USP of KNW. The team understands not just the needs of the client but also the beauty of construction materials, which is why the furniture designed by this company will continue to impress some and surprise the rest!
