Outdoor Furniture Making Workshop Held at JD Institute, Goa
JD Institute of Fashion Technology Goa has recently conducted a very interesting workshop as a part of an Interior Design module– Restoration and Renovation of Building Interiors for 3rd year Interior students.
Mr Navdeep Singh who is the module mentor, encouraged the students to come up with different concepts to make outdoor furniture that are resilient to weather conditions like rain, sun, snow and more.
The students upon hearing this, got very excited and brainstormed various ideas and decided upon a few concepts which they were very eager to show. Mr Navdeep very enthusiastically guided each and every student through-out the entire process.
Here are a few details of the students creative work:
1. JU-TYRE by Aishwarya Mirje
A Three in One Ottoman/Table/Chair.
A multi usage furniture made up of rubber tires along with PVC pipes that is wrapped with Jute ropes.
2. Pool Side Table by Pearl D’Souza
A side table that can be placed besides a lounge chair.
Made from an Old Coca-Cola crate, left over laminate and timber scraps, this piece can be used as a bottle holder.

A portable table to experience and savour various moments.
Designed and made using interior waste materials. These tables are a marriage of organic forms of wooden cut offs and recycled wine bottles.
4. Outdoor Lounge Chair by Cressida Lobo

The key materials for this project are scrap pieces of metal found in and around construction sites and factories along with coconut leaves woven together to form a sturdy seat.
5. Sun Lounger by Shahin Bellur
Lounger with a storage base.
Basic materials used are discarded wood and fabrics. The purpose behind this concept is to avoid using sponge in the cushions since they are made from polyester and cellulose which makes them non-biodegradable and hard to recycle.
