The Zolijns Riva 1920 Briccole Design Competition was held in India, with over 150 entries from 6 schools.
The brief was to use the Briccole posts from the Venetian lagoons and design a table out of them. These oak posts get worn out by tiny molluscs and need to be replaced periodically.
My concept was to highlight these holes and I designed 'Ricordo', which means keepsake in Italian, as a reminder of the dying seafaring traditions of Venice. It is an end table and can be used anywhere in the house.
My mentor for this project was Mr Sanjay Puri, renowned Indian architect.
Ricordo was chosen as a winner from over 150 entries by Maurizio Riva, of renowned Italian furniture firm Riva 1920, and Michele de Lucchi, famous Italian architect and designer.

We were asked to submit technical plans, a graphical representation as well as a scaled model of the design.
Following is my graphical representation :
