18: Design and philosophy at Baro with Siddharth Sirohi

Today I have Siddharth Sirohi with us on Audiogyan. Co-founder of a furniture design company called Baro, in Mumbai. From film production design, Bombay-based Siddharth followed his heart into making furniture that told a story. Siddharth’s aesthetics are highly influenced by the simplicity and classic lines of mid-century modernism. And today we are here to discuss with him the origin of Baro and it's philosophy and more gyan on design.


1\. On your website you’ve said, ‘old school patience’ is the key to good design. Can you start by telling us what do you mean by that?

2\. You are also attracted towards Wabi Sabi form. Can you tell our listeners more about it and Which part of that philosophy attracts you and how have you translated that in your product?

3\. I personally keep swinging between ethnic, vintage style of art versus modern, contemporary minimalistic style of art. What would be your suggestion to marry both the worlds? Or do I polarise one?

4\. Your furniture is made from Reclaimed Teak wood. Can you tell us more about it? What is reclaimed and why?

5\. Miles Davis once said, "sometimes it takes you a long time to sound like yourself” - How did you discover your school of aesthetics and then translate that into your furniture / products?
