Natural forms and structures are often a source of inspiration, she adds. Aram will showcase a selection of her designs, including a Zella Daybed (pictured above left), inspired by an image of a Hoti woman nursing her baby on a hammock, Woven Wall cupboard (pictured above right), inspired by woven wall panels that are commonplace in Indonesian homes, and a range of cabinets made from European Ash.
Created by in-house designers, the store aims to have an “immersive” feel to help customers imagine products in their own homes.
