The constant use of cane, combined with similarly proportioned geometric pattern design, allowed for visual consistency. The green back panels, wardrobe, and storage unit provide the appropriate scale for exploring and experimenting.
Because of the colour palettes, Son’s Bedroom appears very pleasant and large. The enormous, bold artwork by Nirali Gajjar behind the bed immediately draws your attention. The geometry is obtained by rhythmically arranging the bamboo sticks.

It is, indeed, a stroll down memory lane through a new lens.
