Sandeep Mukherjee, comes with more than 30 years of experience in Furniture design, manufacturing and woodwork . Being a Furniture Design graduate from the National Institute of Design Ahmedabad helped him in looking at design as a problem solving approach more than just at an aesthetic value level . He believes that Design Thinking is the only way to bridge the gap between what the users expect and what the manufacturers are capable of producing. He sees himself as the advisor to a furniture manufacturer who is unaware of the challenges that lie ahead him when he is looking at launching his products in the massive Indian market. He helps in developing products, getting them into production using appropriate technology, and helping market them in the right manner.
Sandeep’s immense knowledge about wood and design can help any furniture brand emerge as a great player. His advice for all the entrants in this area is:
“Be open to learning about the subject of wood and other natural materials. Enter into workshops conducted by the timber councils to gain more knowledge about timber species that are not known to you. There is no quick way to gathering knowledge.
Think manufacturing, not just mechanised carpentry workshops. Avoid shortcuts, and remember that bad quality is expensive! Focus and understand the market; it is critical to plan properly before jumping into manufacturing. Buying a few machines and setting up a workshop is easy, running it consistently and making profits is the hard part.”
