The meditative design of Scarlet Splendour

Unrealism is a 21st-century art form. It immerses the meditative mind into a surreal universe of vibrant colors and fluidity. Transcending the constraints of structure, this trance-like experience echoes the ancient practice of deep meditation.

Kolkata, March 2024 – Scarlet Splendour, the Kolkata-based luxury design brand boasting interior products which are both opulent and exuberant, has unveiled Unrealism, a new eclectic collection of limited-edition objects designed by the company founders Ashish Bajoria e Suman Kanodia. Creating functional and yet, emotionally engaging wall panels, luxurious cabinets and transcendent sculptural art and artworks, Unrealism fascinates with its fluid forms and unconstructed beauty.

“The characteristics of Unrealism may appear strange and yet are increasingly familiar. We created artworks that evoke symbolism, random eCects, biomorphic and anamorphic shapes and an epiphany of colours and textures”
Ashish Bajoria and Suman Kanodia

Scarlet Splendour translates Unrealism into iconic furniture, objects and sculptural artworks by using ancient and contemporary crafts of India. The products are meticulously handcrafted by exceptional artisans – these include marquetry in resin, all kinds of metals, semi-precious stones and straw, cast brass, aluminum and copper, superlative carpentry, leather craft and more.
