The students of Diploma in Interior Design July 2019 and August 2019 batches of JD Institute of Fashion Technology, Bangalore, had put up a display on Dining setup using the concept of design process and foundation in designing on 13th March 2020.
The design process explores well-crafted design solution that meets the needs of the client, whereas, foundation design is the creation of a construction plan for an idea or theme. These are the key stages of any interior design project. The two processes were amalgamated by the students to create versatile and creative presentations.
For the activity, the students were divided into groups and were instructed to create three varying Dining displays centred on Spring Season. This was creatively captured through their interspersion of the season.
‘Candle Lite by the Boulevard’ was a classic dinner setup inspired by cherry blossoms. The display had a monochromatic colour concept with tints of pink. The element of symmetry was evident in the table layout and rhythm was incorporated in the overall setup, in the form of squares and circles. Sustainable resources like jute table runner and hand painted gateway sheets were used to create placemats due to its ability to be washed and reused multiple times. Whereas, handcrafted coasters were made of wood. The table was also decorated with baby’s breath and strategically placed candle stands. The inspiration for the set up was ideated by creating different moodboards for the various essentials like the table runners, table set up, coasters and the colours of the spring season to convey their theme effectively
‘Cerulean’ was a contemporary dining setup for a beach side restaurant. The inspiration for the set-up was inspired from butterflies. Handmade butterflies were placed on the flowers placed in the vase kept as the centre piece and also on the plates to create a beatific look. Keeping in tandem with the theme shades of blue dominated the table setting on the table runner, napkins, coasters and plates. The addition of the white flowers, table cloth, fruits, twigs and ferns were implemented to break away from the monotony and create a balance in the colour set up. The jute placemats alongwith the natural elements placed on the table concentrated on sustainable options.
‘Tropical’ as the name suggests was an inspiration for a beautiful set-up for a Sunday brunch at a tropical restaurant. The pastel colour palette was reminiscent of spring and nature. Cartridge sheets were used for table runners and placemats. Tropical basics like the coconut shells, flowers and leaves were used to bring out freshness of the region. Harmony and rhythm were created through the addition of various products on the table to provide a feeling of pleasantness and lightness when customers have their brunch.
Apart from following the necessary steps the students also ensured the inclusion of well thought of sustainable options. The exercise provided the incorporation of the design process and the requisite elements to make an effective impact.
