Interior design practices in recent years have seen a dramatic shift in design strategies that focus mainly on providing sustainable and healthy environments for individuals to live, work, and play. Societies have begun to recognize the interconnectedness of buildings, people, and communities in creating responsibly built environments. The roles of clients and the impact of their choices on the environment are being understood more vigilantly than ever. As a result, they seek interiors and products that demonstrate ecologically responsible and sustainable design.
This project was an initiative to explore Lantana, a species of flowering plant considered a forest weed, and combine it with natural fibers (banana fiber, cork, etc.) in home decor products into the market. The aim of this project is to experiment and add value to diversify the product range in the sustainable home accessory category.
The basic idea was to learn and implement various techniques and methods to derive designs and add newness to take it to the next level to incorporate Lantana into the mainstream market. Emphasis was laid on the development of market-focused products which could be easily made by artisans that goes with the design language of Oorjaa designs. Concept generation was based on observing the existing skills and devising ways to cater to target users. The final range of products is luminaires and garden accessories combining Lantana and banana paper.
