Design X Design
The Plane light is conceived as floating planes, of wood and glass, alternating and revolving around a central axis, to craft light around itself. As an object, the alternating voids aid in generating a dramatic pattern of light, augmenting the light quality of the space it is contained in.
The Plane has recently won the Young Designers’ 13 award by Indian Architect and Builder.
The Barcode Light
The Barcode Light is designed as an abstraction of the ‘barcode’ used extensively in the commercial world today and as an integral part of all products that we use. Fabricated as a solid piece, with voids crafted out to permit light through, the light is manufactured in various colours and is a notional representation of the playful nature of the solid/void relationship.
Design X Design (2013)
“When we received the brief from DxD, we were keen to design a spatial intervention rather than a wall-mounted flat panel. Instead of a new installation that would become redundant in the future, we decided to use an existing bookshelf in our conference room (one of the first pieces of furniture in the office), that was designed as a modular system and then adjusted for peculiarity.
The bookshelf was repurposed for the exhibit; firstly, to stay true to our sustainable attitude, where we are innovative with existing resources and secondly, the modular system designed eight years ago helps to demonstrate the design ethos, while lending itself well to the nature of the exhibit. Even after the exhibition is over, the exhibit has gone back to being the bookshelf with an attitude.”
