Hi, this is Raj from a small tea-estate town in Assam. I did my bachelors in civil engineering and masters in furniture design from CEPT University. Besides having worked with Metal, Wood and Other Composites during academics, i have experimented with cotton cloth waste as reinforcement for making concrete furniture. While working with potters for making terracotta stool, my love for craft - design emerged. Presently amidst this COVID crisis , i am exploring hollow bamboo since Bamboo has age- old connection with the material needs of the people of Assam where these are found in greatest abundance and varieties. Not a vast experience in the world of design, but passionate enough to think rationally and ideate solutions to problems.
