Bamboo Structure

A social gathering space

The aim of the project was to create a social gathering place, to encouragestudents to interact with each other and pull them away from digital life. The structure should be such that it allows the freedom of space and comfort. So idea was to explore the properties of Bamboo as a material using unique bamboo properties to create a structure which would be a nice conversation starter and help spread the benefits of bamboo. we explored the bending properties of bamboo with out using conventional method of heat bending.

As a team of 10 people, the another challenge was to work with 10 minds with divrse design taste and come down to one aesthetic solution. We embraced the unexpected characteristics of bamboo and after hours of brainstorm on ideas and excecution efforts, the output was quite interesting
