sachi tungare.

Sachi is a Mumbai based, freshly graduated, multidisciplinary designer. Her design practice lies in bringing together the human and humane; in tying the threads of human needs and vulnerability with wellbeing. Her focus lies on investigating the context, uncovering its layers of complexities and nuances. Sachi likes thinking with her hands and exploring different media to convey the notion.

 

At the moment, she is particularly interested in tapping into waste streams, based on the theory of circular economy and exploring their materiality qualities as potential alternative material. She likes to think that design is her way of doing her bit for the planet.
