Craft-based Projects

During a period of three years, workshops were conducted with over 100 craftspeople working with Bamboo – a material central to their existence in this remote and much ignored part of India.

A range of utilitarian products were designed by Siddhartha and created at the workshops. The lamp shade on the left is one such product from a range that includes a variety of furniture, accessories, containers and lights.

Some of the products were displayed at 100% Design 2009, London, by the British Council, and also featured in Monocle magazine, UK, in 2010, as one of the 30 products to buy from across the world.

The light is being featured in a forthcoming book on Indian Design by the Victoria & Albert Museum, London.
