Rhizome

Rhizome is India’s first multi-disciplinary design studio working at the intersection of craft, design and sustainability. Rhizome was founded in 2009 by Dr. Rebecca Reubens to look at sustainability from a more holistic and developing country perspective. Rhizome believes that design can simultaneously be commercially-viable and positively impact sustainability.

Sustainability is a compound picture made up of lots of beautifully complex, wicked and non-negotiable pieces which our designs work to integrate. We look beyond single individual factors—such as the user, the market and production lines—to an integrated design brief.

Our designs are developed in collaboratively with a cross section of actors, including communities. This helps us look at all the pieces of the sustainability jigsaw—economic, social, cultural, and ecological—to design sustainable products with underpinning production to consumption systems.
