CIBART(Center For Indian Bamboo Resource & Technology)

The project was a community-based design intervention with bamboo as a material through exploration and understanding its relevance in today’s scenario of heavy industrialisation. The project also deploys design thinking to implement exploratory design intervention towards the contemporary tourist market. The project was carried out at a tribal development based NGO and social livelihood enterprise-driven project based in southern Gujarat and implemented with the primitive tribal community in that area. The end output resulted in exploratory bamboo products, targeted for cafeteria spaces and the tourist market for potential consumers to get a multi-sensorial experience thus altering their perception towards the material and supporting the livelihood of the tribals creating these products.
