Hi, I’m Mayur Hajare and I’m a student of National Institute of Design, Ahmedabad, India. Under the guidance of our faculty Pravin Kumar Solanki, we the students of furniture design started working on how we can use scrap materials to make useful and beautiful things. Here I would like to share the process of my work with you all. Let me know what you think about them.

PROCESS 

SCRAP HUNT

On our very first day Pravin introduced us to this beautiful part of furniture designing I’m which you give a new life to the things which are not useful anymore. I left for the hunt on Saturday. I visited areas in Ahmedabad that were known for scrap dealers and found many interesting things which I could work on.

On Sunday morning I went to this place called Sunday market in Ahmedabad with Pravin. This place is very known for selling antique things and scrap. Here are some photographs of a few interesting materials I found. .

LAST HUNT

On Tuesday our whole batch with pravin Solanki, went to the scrap dealer .

3. collapsible furniture

I found these kitchen drawers at one scrap store and even though they were waste materials, they were beautiful and nicely done, and it costed me only 150 bucks.

explorations

-collapsible chair ( inspired from dandelion )

The drawers were covered with a thick plastic coat for preventing metal from rusting under the influence of moisture. Removing this layer was a task.

After removing the layer I worked on the mechanism part of this chair and then painted it off white and the rod in between for support, brown. I also made two holders out of pvc rod by using lathe machine
