Panel with emotions Wall Paneling by Amee Vora

Home > Winners > #62697


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Panel with emotions

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Wall Paneling

INSPIRATION:
The paneled wall, flanking the whole length of the hallway, connected the children room to the parents room, and the first thing that came to mind was the beautiful poetry by Rabindranath Tagore, a brilliant poet and storyteller, which describes an impish yet a very tender and affectionate relationship between mother and child titled Champa tree.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The adopted art form and the then chosen subject, talk about the warm, emotional bond between a mother and child. This canvas adjacent to the two bedrooms, was transformed into a dense grove of Frangipani, using the intricate art of wood marquetry, a regional craft of Mysore, Bangalore, India. It uses, woods of different varieties to depict the length and depth of the landscape, along with varieties of semi-precious stones inlaid in wood showing the Champa flowers and birds, making the artwork surreal. Unusual details such as this, add a bespoke element to our work.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The landscape begins from one end and terminates at the other with marquetry continuing in the fore ground and background, high and low, seamlessly folding over surfaces. The spatial landscape and detailing were planned to align the flow of materials with that of surfaces, to construct a carefully researched narrative that wove Indian craft seamlessly into the rest of interiors. The use of wood textures and colours, alongwith a lavish material play in wise measures add a vital dimension to this design story.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
From start to finish at site was a 100 working days job. The site is located in Mumbai, India.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Our concept was realized by collaborations with artisans and craftsmen. Teak wood panels were first prepared at site, temporarily installed to sand, level and prepare the surface ready to receive the inlay. A hand sketch in pencil was prepared in the exact same number and size of panels on tracing paper, was superimposed and checked to establish scale, continuity and flow of the subject form. The tracing and the panels were then transported to the workshop where the craftsmen inlaid the pieces of Mahogany, ebony, cherry and walnut on the teak wood to add depth to the landscape. Lastly the panels were inlaid with the Mother of pearl shell to depict the Champa flowers and the birds. The panels were transported back to site for installation. They were oiled and buffed to shape into the final product.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
48 ft long and 9.5 ft tall panel divided in multiples of approx. 4 ft (for ease of transportation and handling), with interlocking Mitred joints at the points where the surface folded over. 20mm thick solid teak wood planks interlocked with dominoes, backed by 19mm gurjan plywood with adequate overlapping to engineer the contraction and expansion of wood. All inlaid wood is thoroughly seasoned varieties.

TAGS:
Frangipani grove, Tagore’s Champa Tree, Mother and Child, Marquetry work, Handcraft.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
A blank wall, 48 ft long 9.5 ft tall, becomes a canvas for story-telling, in this passage that abutted a children’s bedroom and that of their parents. Inspired by Tagore’s rendition of the impish yet tender bond between a mother and child in Champa Flower, it was transformed into a veritable grove of Frangipani, whose low branches evoke images of children hanging by them, or scaling the tree images of laughter and play and childish whimsy.

CHALLENGE:
The paneling required equal amount of effort at site and offsite. Both the locations were geographically distant, and that required a lot of planning and co-ordination between the two locations, to ensure the natural qualities of materials being used were being well engineered to achieve the desired final product.

CLIENT/STUDIO/BRAND DETAILS
NAME:
AV Fourth Dimension

PROFILE:
At AV Fourth Dimension, the vision is Living Beautiful. The practice adapts timeless traditional art forms to contemporary living, creating, in the process, bespoke spaces that are full of individualistic appeal and delicate, yet robust, detailing. The design process is imaginative, characterful and highly communicative, striving to create designs that express the key qualities of depth, excellence and inspiration. Headed by Amee Vora, an alumnus of Arvindbhai Patel Institute of Environmental Design, Anand, Gujarat, the studio sees each design as a deeply engaged exercise, involving dialogues, discussions, collaborations and explorations, and undoubtedly benefits from the strengths of its principal, who is extensively involved in conceptualizing and planning. A meticulous process that seeks to increase clarity of communication between the client and designer by capturing crucial information, marks the first step of an assignment. This is followed through with the development of multiple design possiblities, using the most important early-stage design tool – the drawing. Studies into material and colour palettes and arrival at an apt selection, complete the cycle. This is then taken through to the execution stage, with as commitment on site. Since its inception in 2010, the firm has eschewed the straitjacketing of categories. Though residential interiors form a majority of the studio’s work, it has lent its expertise to other verticals such as retail, office interiors and commercial interiors. Moreover, with Vora’s belief in design being universal and that the learning of one creative genre can be applied to another, the studio is increasingly looking beyond traditional boundaries of architecture and interior architecture, and into art and product design. Thrice winner of the prestigious A’ Design Award, both in the interior design and product design categories, the practice has grown steadily and organically on the foundation of positive reviews and client confidence. With a heart that beats for tradition and a contemporary outlook, AV Fourth Dimension remain steadfast in their belief that the beauty of the spaces they create today, will endure the tomorrow… gracefully.
