Step Desk or Console by Jannat Vasi Lokhandwala

Home > Winners > #51260


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Step

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Desk or Console

INSPIRATION:
An apt manifestation of its name, Step is inspired by a series of one point perspective sketches. Inferences illustrate the depth created on a surface with mere lines and angles. When colouring 3D objects on a 2D surface, the objects closest to the vanishing point are shaded darker. Another study recognizes that having the outer shell in a light colour almost always gives an appearance of weightlessness. Although the mass is constant, the gradient makes it lighter than a solid unit.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The design is a solution to create an enhanced visual depth within the boundaries of a standalone object. This unit is available in two designs giving an option to the user to meet the requirement of aesthetics with concealed atypical storage. The resultant appearance of this table is light due to the design composition and the user can alter the proportions to meet the interior design constraints. This concept can translate to a collection from a table to a bench, console, chair or unit.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
An interaction with a user is the key to any successful design. Storage along with a good look and comfort to use while seated makes this product usable to all. When not used as a work desk, it can be placed against a feature wall with an art frame hanging above. It can also work as a divider to distinguish two areas in the same space as front and back side of the table are the same. The design imprints on onlookers and instantly spruces up a space by becoming a focal element.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
This piece took around 2 months from concept to execution in Mumbai, India.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The design started with the requirement for a study table in a residential villa project. It began with the dimensions available on site and concept of the room which has gradient transition floor tiles from Mirage Italy. The shaded colours were used and various designs were sketched out. From a sketch to a 3D drawing to a scaled model, it was a detailed process. Renders were made to check the continuing pieces of wood and intersecting angles which resulted in a final 2d construction drawing, the design with details was then given for execution on site to the contractor team.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
50mm X 63.5mm Burma teak cross section and 19mm marine ply storage. Finish in paint with a high gloss colour lamination coat. 5 gradient shades are as follows: RAL9003, RAL7047, RAL7042, RAL7011, RAL9005.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
An innovative approach to designing a functional furniture item has been the key to develop this design. Every commercial and residential space needs a study or work table. The research emerged from the requirement of designing a movable utility piece which draws attention due to its sculptural quality. The space for which this design was conceived is small and a large table was needed without overwhelming and dominating the surrounding interior. The neutral colours fit well into a modern space and the logical use of gradient colours makes it appear light.

CHALLENGE:
The design is clean; edges are sharp and straight lined. The single piece has a gamut of colours which arise from one to the next. The progression of shades needs to be executed absolutely precisely to render the neat look intended. The challenge was to get this piece hand done perfectly as it is the first execution of this furniture and the convenience of mass production manufacturing wasn't available for a single unit.
