CQ&A #01 ft. Material Immaterial: The Mirage Collection :Material Immaterial believes in the concept of “bare” beauty, where the material of the product speaks for itself. Mirage is a series focusing on concrete and how unique shapes and patterns give the simple material depth and character.

Mirage Collection

Founded by architects Nitin Barchha and Disney Davis, Material Immaterial is a product design studio that creates objects that are architectural in their element.

Geometries and illusions

The thin, meticulously designed steps in each piece of the collection along with the unique play of light and shadow create a deceptive and delicate perception of concrete.

Having found a need for accessories and hardware to adorn their architectural creations, the designers were motivated to create products that showcase architecture in its miniature form.

Door handles crafted from concrete

The materials used by the studio are all sourced locally.

CQ&A #01 ft Mirage by Material Immaterial

Underneath the facade of the aesthetic appeal of every piece of architecture and design, are the long hours, the meticulous effort, the attention to minute details, the prototypes, and a story unique to it. While with CQ you join us in unravelling the stories, experiments and the makings of these intricate creations, CQ&A takes you further into the studios, and behind the scenes. With each video, CQ&A brings you architecture and design explained by the designers themselves.

Founded by architects Nitin Barchha and Disney Davis, Material Immaterial is a product design studio that creates objects that are architectural in their element and inspired by bare beauty. As Disney says, “the idea is at the forefront, and material is immaterial.” Having found a need for accessories and hardware to adorn their architectural creations, the designers were motivated to create products that showcase architecture in its miniature form. Hence, the material is immaterial.

Mirage Collection

Founded by architects Nitin Barchha and Disney Davis, Material Immaterial is a product design studio that creates objects that are architectural in their element.

Provoked by the work of Carlos Scarpa, the Italian architect, Material Immaterial moulded Mirage, a series of door handles crafted from concrete. The thin, meticulously designed steps in each piece of the collection along with the unique play of light and shadow create a deceptive and delicate perception of concrete. This illusion gave birth to the name of the collection – “Mirage”.
