Patterns on purpose

Resulting from a formal exploration of traditional Indian patterns and a study into socio-cultural practices in public areas, Patterns on Purpose is a mobile library system linked to outdoor furniture. The assembly of several of these pieces of furniture also forms patterns, while bringing a significant change to a deeply-rooted practice of gathering outdoors. Located near market stalls, urban landmarks and gathering places, this furniture improves public spaces by integrating a cultural activity. A force of harmony with a community dimension, this concept encourages people to talk to one another.

This project is exhibited at Hangar 32 at “Design l’Expo”, from 28th November 2014 to 25th January 2015.
