These lamps are made with metal and natural white fine cotton fabric. Fabric textures include pleating, pin tucks, reverse pleating and fabric folding. A language of vertical lines formed by these techniques was followed to make this ensemble. They are installed in the conference room of Ark, an office space and art gallery designed by PBB Architects in ahmedabad.
The Ark building is a marvel and modern day Bauhaus! Inspired by Paul Klee’s ‘Uncomposed Objects in Space’ the building is really something to look at. With suspended corten steel boxes and bare concrete walls with Walter D’souza’s art engraved in them, the building has surprises to offer wherever one looks.
It was a big opportunity for me to be able to be a part of this amazing project.
