A circular High-rise centre table which makes you witness a static painting coming to life, where each figure actually seems to move, rejoicing their celebration in Stop Motion. The table takes its structure from a Stepwell, with each layer diminishing under the other forming an array of concentric circles. Each step portrays a different element of the Warli tribe’s ‘Tarpa dance’ featuring figurines, motifs and relevant graphic interpretations used by the tribe themselves. All the layers viewed together from the top, complete the Historic paintings of Tarpa dance. But there’s more! How could we bring this breathtaking arrangement to life? A rotation using a disk bearing is added to the Upper half of the table. A basic addition to the entire assembly but that performed wonders. A regular product found in every home was not just added with the utility of accessibility, rather it became that mesmerizing Table that holds you captive of its beauty & makes sure that you can’t take your eyes off.
Perfect definition of contemporarising ethnicity. Being an appreciator of Traditional Design, this table showcases the timeless style with intricate craftsmanship.
Lupt Tolli is an example of a perfect product. The table not only encompasses the Indian traditional art and craft in its design by the use of Warli elements but also in its form using the concept of ancient stepwells. Me being a current resident of Gandhinagar, have visited Adalaj a couple of times and have always been mesmerised by it. And I see an apt representation of it, in the product. The idea of combining two such contrasting art forms, emerging from two distinct geographical areas, gives the product a unique edge in terms of representation.
