Spacewood, India’s leading manufacturer of modular furniture is constantly evolving with the needs and lifestyles of their customers. Most flats today are characterized by a shortage of space and therefore space saving furniture plays a very important role. Through her project, Sharyu designed ‘Taksheel’, a space saving dining unit which not only utilizes small spaces efficiently, but is also multi-functional, transformable and aesthetically beautiful.
Taksheel was designed to serve multiple functions such as dining and study table, crockery, bar unit and so on. The unit consisted of three main sections; a semi open shelf with a sliding shutter on the top, an open shelf to showcase crockery with a movable box in the centre and a base unit with three divisions including a foldable dining unit, drawer and closed shelves. Castor wheels for smooth mobility and extra storage space added to the functionality of the furniture.
