Amsha – Future Origin – JD Annual Design Awards 2017
Award Category: Most Innovative Product
Product Name: Amsha
Students Name: Safia Mansoor and Shradha Sanjay
Amsha is a multi-purpose furniture inspired by the shape of the musical instrument – tabla. Going back to the roots to reinvent something for the future, the designers have tried to inculcate the traditional values of Indian classical music in their product. Keeping the space constraint that many households in today’s era are facing, the designers came up with a piece of furniture that is compact but at the same time multi-functional. A piece of furniture that can be used as a table, a stool and a bookshelf. The materials used to build it are completely environment-friendly. Bamboo and cane are the core materials used with bamboo plywood used for the seat and bamboo reapers to create the mini bookshelf. Though people still love Indian instruments, they don’t wish to make them a part of their home interiors. In such a scenario, introducing tables inspired by the shape of tabla, would not only instil the passion of music in the house interiors but also keep the traditional music alive.
