The Modern Muse – RYBA Project

Our recently completed project in Ahmedabad, is one of our finest works. It allowed us to explore and experiment, and create a result that served as an inspiration for other projects we undertook.


Designed by Matharoo Associates, this two-storey residential project is truly modern, thanks to its unconventional structure and unique, exposed RCC walls that make it stand out. And these features were leveraged by adding a dash of vibrant colors with furniture and décor pieces for an extraordinary charm.

The décor elements in this project were carefully selected from Italian brands such as Bonaldo, Pianca, Tacchini, Cassina, and Cattelan Italia. The lighting was sourced from Flos. 

We started the procurement process with a trip to Italy, where the client selected lights and furniture, and then Arcedior created a mood board with the inputs from the designer. The project was aimed at exuding a modern flair while also going big on functionality. And, the furniture pieces were accordingly aligned with the goal. 

The master bedroom on the ground floor consists of the Bonaldo Campo bed, a simple and elegant upholstered bed that has an easy-open storage system. It also consists of the Bonaldo Pongo sofa bed – also installed in bedrooms on the first floor – which has a base that can be pulled out and used for storage.

Pianca Spazio television unit plus a bookshelf is another attractive furniture piece that’s common in all bedrooms of the house.

The dining room showcases a dining table by Bonaldo that creatively interprets design. Its aluminum structure, acid-treated black glass top, and glossy lacquered legs make it a perfect piece for the modern dining room.

The formal living room on the first floor features a single-element sofa and a simple yet smart coffee table by Pianca, which can be raised and separated from its structure with a simple gesture to be used as a tray. It also consists of the Cassina Dodo swiveling armchair which transforms as required and can also be used as a chaise-lounge.

The highlight of this project was the custom-created 60mm-high piled rugs by Arcedior made on special request by the client and the designer. The designers at Matharoo Associates gave us handmade paintings that had to be converted into rugs. We made artworks and selected 40-50 colors to bring the blending of colors and variations to the rugs. It was the first time we attempted something like this, and the result was simply brilliant!

The final outcome of this project was urbane and exquisite. And the fact that we got to experiment and enhance our capabilities is another reason why it is so close to our hearts. And, we are sure that every member of our team who was involved in it would completely agree.
