I guess I don’t need to say the theme of this furniture design, well the main objective of “Alice in Chairs” furniture set would be to display parallel worlds and different dimensions in a living room. Cards on the wall and a table hiding Alice’s chairs are the aesthetic composition for a young couple’s loft. It’s a new way to organize and optimize any room for urban living lifestyle.

There are more than 67 million diabetic patients in India alone, these “diabetics” have mindset ranges from diabetes-as-life-sentence to the ones who are in denial despite their medical reports.

For the screens, the selection of the fonts and weights were selected ensuring the best visibility, legibility across age groups.
