Lighting Workshop Jali is a term for perforated stone carving, mainly seen in Islamic Architecture. Taking Jali as my inspiration I created a unique tessellation for a backlight panel. The use of such a pattern and the dias was to give an Indian look as was expected in the assignment.

Folding Furniture This folding ladder is made for kitchen areas in small houses, focusing on the user and space constraints. I tried to achive a model which has a simple form and mechanism. It can be easily placed as it requires minimal room. It is multi-purpose, as it works as a seater whose need is well justified in small kitchens.

Elements of Form Taking starfruit (carambola) as my inspiration I incorporated the fruit’s features in an ornate hanging lamp. I also explored the weaving technique in achieving the desired form.

Taking giant water lily leaves (victoria amazonica) as my inspiration, I have made coasters. I focused on the intricate vein structure and their unique feature to support weight on them, which I have attempted to incorporate in the product.

Creative Workshop A mixture of both vintage and retro was the style I tried to achive in the wall lamp. The dim yellow light creates a comfortable and relaxed environment corresponding to the theme.

Enlightening Scrap The concept of upcycling of scrap material by giving it more value as a product was the focus in designing the key lamp. The keys were obtained from a market in the Old City of Ahmedabad.
