DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Marigold Seating Collection

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Puff

INSPIRATION:
The 3D petal work is inspired and interpreted from Indian Marigold flowers. The geometrical placement of the petals and vividness of the petal work is translated in origami cell structures creating 3D cells

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The Marigold Pouf collection is inspired from the marigold flowers from India that are used for rituals and other auspicious occasions for various ceremonies. The vibrant hues of petal work and natural color palette of the base linen are reminiscent of the seemingly virtuous and pleasingly simple yet vivid marigold flowers. The origami formation of petals is solely handcrafted for various patterns and effects. The result is a repetitive cell work that forms a vibrantly 3D tactile pouf that livens up any indoor space. The poufs are available in various colors, patterns and versions. All poufs come with a zipper closure for easier maintenance.

The Marigold seating collection is a 3d origami interpretation of Indian Marigold flowers. The colour palette is vivid like the flowers creating accent pieces in living spaces. All the seaters come with a zipper for easier maintenance.

The origami formation of petals is solely handcrafted for various patterns and effects. The result is a repetitive cell work that forms a vibrantly 3D tactile pouf that livens up any indoor space. The poufs are available in various colors, patterns and versions. All poufs come with a zipper closure for easier maintenance.

Studio Avni is a multidisciplinary design studio offering bespoke 3D textiles, furniture, lights and products using unconventional materials. Headed by Architect and Designer Avni, the studio explores a wide spectrum of design innovations through research and tactile manipulation of organic shapes and geometric patterns. Avni Sejpal is a trained architect and a passionate designer, hailing from a textile family and educated at Chelsea College of Art & Design, London with a MA in Environmental Design (Majors in Furniture, Public Art and Graphics). She has over 8 years experience domestically and internationally in the industry, with stints in the world of Interiors, Furniture, Fashion and Graphic Design, she returned to Mumbai, India to open her own studio in 2011. Avni works in an intuitive way with a variety of materials and techniques. Bold and vivid use of color, patterns and structural integrity is a constant feature in all her works. She is also curious with the idea of role reversal of materials wherein soft fabrics are so designed to have a structure and form and strong and hard materials such as metal are designed to have a fluid, ephemeral quality. Her style and work is an amalgamation of Architecture fundamentals and Textile curiosity. Embracing honest design, Studio Avni endeavors to produce exceptional products that convey quality and originality throughout each of the collections.
