Prateek Jain and Gautam Seth began klove studio in 2006 with the goal of making light products that merged fantasy, reality, functionality and design. Bent on experimentation and inspired by the skills they learnt from working with traditional Indian craftsmen.
The duobegan to hone their dream of creating a hands-on, locally grounded brand that was synonymous with the highest quality of hand blown glass possible.
Now, more than a decade in to business, klove has become a globally applauded brand. Employing over sixty highly skilled workers, the brand has developed a wide range of products that span larger than life 3D installations and basic, functional lighting for the home. Each product is stamped with what has become klove’s signature: bold, refined design that borrows equally from Prateek and Gautam’s roots Indian roots and their lovefor global travel and adventure.
Partners in business and adventure, Prateek and Gautam have built a strong, enviable partnership. Their collective interests span travel, yoga, horticulture and the arts; these passions, and their differing personal preferences within them, add complex dimensions to their design inspirations. The striking commonality between Prateek and Gautam --that lies at the core of the klove philosophy -- is their dedication to local craftsmen, commitment to experimentation and interest in research. Furthermore, the duo always prioritize local, hands-on practical experience above any other form of learning; getting their hands dirty while working with fragile materials is a particular experience they thrive on.
