Professional work as an in-house designer for Godrej & Boyce Mfg. Co. Ltd, Mumbai, India.
HiStool is a bar stool that was designed for use in a cafe workspace. It had to capture the history of a 116 year old company and convey it's modern ideals as well. It has a mix of sharp clean lines in the upper structure and soft rounded legs in the understructure. The seat is made of sheet metal by forming it and is powder coated. The leg structure is made by turning wood. Hence, the form, material choice and the manufacturing process is contrasting and complementing one another.
