Designer: Sadhiya Hanindita,
Project (student): “an exploration of laminated bamboo technique, applied to furniture for children – in this case, preschool kids’ classroom stool. He collaborated with a preschool in Bandung during his research, where he could observe the students’ behaviors in the classroom, especially when interacting with their seating facilities. He focused also on the potentials of Indonesian bamboo craftsmen in rural areas in the production process, in order to make sure of the production feasibility, by actually working together with local craftsmen in producing his prototypes.”
Why I like it: Collaborated with local communities to produce a product that could potentially be manufactured by local craftsmen.
The use of natural material in a market that is saturated with plastic and throw away objects.
