The Future Will Be Sown

Milan Design Week 2024
Body Ornaments

Over several months now, we’ve made
unexpected discoveries by establishing new relationships with our ecologies.
Immersing ourselves in unfamiliar
landscapes, traveling to the source of a raw material, exploring indigenous
practices, embracing storytelling, and
fostering new friendships, have
contributed to a dramatic turn in our
perception of how design can both belong to a place and innovate itself. Stepping into
uncharted territories as architects,
The Future Will Be Sown – Milan Chapter,

makes us courageously wear our vulnerabilities and insanities, quite literally.

Six ecological materials,
Six wearable ornaments
have meticulously emerged from
six different landscapes in Southern India. These have each been crafted
together with communities deeply rooted in their regions, cultivated over time.

Made In Earth Collective
We are a team of architects and artisans, based in Bangalore and along the Kaveri belt. 
Our work is rooted in our materials. We promote an architecture that is closer to people,
the environment and the resources of a place. We work with natural building materials and
techniques with a taste for experimentation and innovation. Together with clay, lime and stories
from our region, we indulge in conversations between the obvious and the obscure, the community
and the craftsmen, between the material and the maker. And with this continuous dialogue,
we love to create expressions that are new, meaningful and environment friendly.
