Muse- Lounge Chair


Bamboo crafts are being practiced in India by local craftsmen in making traditional arts, handmade utensils, crafts making through weaving techniques from very long time. Bamboo is very Asian by its nature and has a cultural connect. Bamboo is the fastest growing grass and it grows maturely in 4-5 years while other woods take 40-50 years! It is an eco- sustainable material.
Muse Lounge chair celebrates bamboo as a new design material in which 2 m long slivers are used repeatedly to create the form and harmony, which is unique and thus pushes the boundary! The two parallel layers of bamboo connected in between gives a great strength to it.
It was my first experience working with bamboo, and I really enjoyed it. I learned a lot about different techniques of working with bamboo (splitting, bending, curing) and the limitations and possibilities of the material.
