Other Kingdom was founded in 2015 by Avantika Agarwal (IN), Jess Fugler (US) and Tino Seubert (DE). The three met in the Design Products course at the Royal College of Art, where they discovered their shared passion for exploring materials, playing with color, and engaging with production. Together they combine their diverse backgrounds and expertise alongside Eastern and Western aesthetic sensibilities to form Other Kingdom.
Other Kingdom’s first collection is a forward-thinking approach to product manufacturing that connects designers directly with makers in order to create objects that challenge the outcomes of craft and machine production. Unbound by a single production method, Other Kingdom seeks out industry experts and master craftsmen to blend methods and materials for their multifaceted collection.
A contrasting mix of natural materials and industrial finishes highlight the breadth of work, where quality end results are as important as the experimental approach that guided the design process. The premier collection consists of five product families entitled Grid Platters, Circque Platters, Uniform Tables, Hammertone Trays, and Crystalline Cushions.
