Project Completed: Sep-2014

100 Cylindrical Wooden Elements + 7,000 Wooden Discs +26,000 Staple Pins +72 hours + 384 Human Hours of work =  WOODEN FOLIAGE

Invited as the facilitators for the Space Making Wood Workshop - an initiative from DICRC (Design Innovation and Craft Resource Centre), CEPT Ahmedabad,-  Rooshad Shroff  (Rooshad Shroff Architecture + Design) and Jwalant Mahadevwala  (andBlack Design Studio) were presented with a unique opportunity to design and manufacture a canopy  using left over wooden members from the previous workshop within 72 hours.
The brief presented was to incorporate 100 tapering cylindrical wooden members (2' long / 2' dia) that had been previously discarded due to its unaccounted additional weight. 
The initial thought was to create a canopy that would contradict its inherent heaviness and move  away from the linearity of the members to create a surface showcasing the grains of the wood.
