Oorjaa has always championed the cause of sustainability and using waste as their raw materials is what drives their design
To mark the season of festivities and celebrations, a new collection has been launched by Oorjaa called ‘Fiber Fables’. This new collection brings together two distinct natural elements in aesthetic lighting designs.
Idea behind the design
Water hyacinth, found in abundance in the Tungabhadra river to the extent that it’s disturbing the ecology, while the other is a waste generated from several stone quarries around Bangalore. The water hyacinth, harvested from the river, is used in creating wave patterns on pendant, table and floor lamps. At the same time, the main structure of these lamps is created with faux concrete, which is derived from quarry waste.
Weave pattern designs are also created with banana fiber, another agricultural waste fibre.
Fiber Fables weaves unique lighting designs with these contrasting elements. Their distinguished textures and features add character to each lighting design giving them a unique appeal. Nevertheless, all the product designs have one similarity, their essence lies in being environment-friendly.
