NY NOW preview: No-Mad

At the upcoming New York Home, Lifestyle + Gift Show, set to take place August 21-24, No-Mad will showcase its culturally-inspired tableware

At the upcoming NY NOW, set to take place August 21-24 at the Javits Convention Center, No-Mad will showcase its India-inspired tableware.

A collaboration between Indian-born creative engineer Anuj Kothari and Belgian designer Valerie Barkowski, homeware brand No-Mad takes inspiration from many cultures but its usefulness remains in line with the Indian way of life.

Its Bhumit table linen is inspired by the simplicity and traditions of Sashiko, the ancient Japanese technique of embroidery with designs screen-printed on to 100 per cent linen. Its philosophy of revisiting daily items delivers twists on traditional Indian pieces like the Indian kettle or the Thali tray. 

No-Mad offers everything from stainless steel PU-coated Thali trays and linen cocktail napkins to 100 per cent copper teapots.
