MATERIAL EXPLAORATION I wanted to work with used newspaper as a material to explore its possibility. After making the basic structure, I used texture white on it and tried to paint it as wooden strips.
Prototype of an expanding table using sun board or foam board.
I also wanted to explore intricate nature of embroidery and different kinds of stiching patterns. I also wanted to create a pouch for all my stationary.
This floor lamp is made using a mild steel pipe and the shades are made by using macrame technique from jute. I have taken an inspiration from bambooâ€™s flexibility and how it bends when there is just one.
LEATHERWORK I wanted to design something which I can use for longer periods of time.
The cover can be used by putting the first and the last page inside the flaps and then use it like normal notebook.
This laptop table not only acts like a laptop table but also as a storage space. The table top also inclines at an angle and when the drawer is pulled out, it works as a mouse pad.
WOOD-WORK PHOTO FRAME
There are two types of joints in the photo frame. Lap joint and joint at 45 degrees. The back of the frame is mdf.
Seeing a spring jump up and down and making it do the has a certain kind of satisfaction. Also the crochet done on the spring gives a certain aestheic beauty when the spring bounces.
ALL IN ONE HAMMER
I was seeing our family carpenter making furniture and he had two different hammers. One had a nail puller and the other one had two flat sides. So, while thinking on it, I had this idea of combing all sorts of different hammers as attachments at the bottom of the hammer.
The mechanism includes turn and release mechanism
CHANGABLE HEAD HAMMER
One day I was using a hammer and the hammer was too big for the nail. I thought of this design then, that it would be simpler to have one handle and more hammer heads rather than having many hammers.
SOLAR BRICK OVEN
Bricks are ususally baked by making a dome of bricks which have to be baked with a fire in between. That produces a lot of pollution. This is a concept to provide an alternative for the existing design.
Striking small nails with a hammer becomes difficult sometimes. I thought if the nails are stacked like bullets in a bullet clip, then hammering will be easier.
LED WRITING BOARD
This is a normal LED writing board but with a storage space. The base and the basic structure is made using MDF wood and the top is made using acrylic sheet.
POEM During a study trip in Hampi, I was getting first hand exposure to all the destruction and uprooting of the local market and the resettlement of them. Interviewing some of the local vendors and listening to their story, in Hampi, how they settled there and how the whole place slowly developed as visitors came to visit Hampi. My team and I interviewed some of the various stakeholders. Based on my encounter with the place and the people, I penned down a poem.
