Wishboo

This collection reinterprets Wegner’s iconic Wishbone chair in bamboo. The design strategy included staying true to the logic of the form; using bamboo’s properties as carefully as Wegner used wood’s properties and adjusting the aesthetics and scale to make it recognizable but not identical.
The chairs are woven using different types of sustainable ropes, including recycled sari waste and natural fiber.

We designed a terracotta dessert table and pot installation for the terracotta themed restaurant at the resort. Because of the scale of the table, it was impossible to throw it on a potter's wheel. Instead, the design was created in two large hemispheres which were hand formed in terracotta and joined using a mechanical detail. The table top was crafted in wood and included an induction heating system. As a backdrop to the piece-de-resistance, the table, we designed an installation of cuboidal units which housed differently shaped terracotta pots which together formed an interesting and harmonious assemblage. We also worked on the design of a contemporary thaali for the restaurant, which included a complete set of plates, quarter plates, glasses, and bowls.
