Catalogue Note

It was the beginning of my practice and we needed some chairs and stools. The most cost-effective way was to use of pieces of steel pipe and rods discarded as wastage.  A great opportunity I felt, to transform waste and create furniture in daily use. I felt it was my way of contributing to the reduction of waste and one step closer to long term sustainability and eco-friendliness.
