At HOF, we have a team of talented artists who think of a furniture concept and design it thereafter. The design process begins only after an in-depth analysis by the research and development team who think for every possible perspective before giving a nod for a concept. The basic process of designing a chair goes as under:
Our premium Sofas are Designed in Italy and Made in India. Miki Astori is Product designer based in Milan, Italy
About Product Designer, Milan (Miki) –
Born in Milan, he is an architect and interior designer. He took part in several projects for Kartell, Flos, Driade, with a focus on the development of HiFi components for the Thomson Group.
In 1995 he established his own studio in Milan, mainly operating in the fields of furniture design, interior design and architecture. He visited Indonesia, Taiwan, Thailand, China and Vietnam and developed a new family of products balancing ancient traditions and oriental suggestions with typically western industrial methods and high standards of quality.
Among raw materials, he prefers natural fibers like rattan, wood and iron, which he usually combines and uses together so to reach simple and clearly designed structures.
We research current global trends and design innovations. Once a design idea is finalized, it’s time to put it on paper.
Our expert artists then sketch the idea from the mind to the paper and that is when a concept gets a face.
This stage involves thinking about what materials to be used, what should be the ideal height and weight of the furniture.
Our team researches human anatomy and then derives upon the ideal structure and position for sitting in order to stay healthy.
