Concept
Bringing new life to old furniture by weaving left over fabric strips throughout them, completely changing the look and feel of these conventional pieces to something bright and colourful.

Designed for
These pieces are designed to test a concept, that old products should continue their life cycle through reinvention, in regards to that, they are not designed for any particular country. They fit into current Indian design well enough to suit established styles and fit into many homes or businesses. However, the colourful and cultural design could easily see its way into a western home to spruce up and be the main attention piece of an area. The modest prices of this collection allows it to reach far throughout the world and be appreciated by many.

Client
Sarthak Sahil Design Co (pieces were developed as a ‘Zero Kilometre Design Concept’) and are sold online by the designers.
