Gaurav Wali is an award-winning interdisciplinary designer driven to investigate the intersection of our current environmental and socio-economic issues. By combining indigenous knowledge systems with a global perspective, he designs holistic solutions that mutually benefit humans and nature.

His work explores the dormant potential of unwanted and often overlooked materials to build new narratives for designed objects, sustainable systems and crafts - diving deeper into the understanding of materials, their ecological impact, and their geographical and cultural significance.
