Throne made from recycled bicycle parts and bamboo stools

Gunjan-Gupta-small.jpgGunjan Gupta is an Indian product designer, committed in the promotion of India’s handmade and craft industries who creates pieces of furniture from natural or recycled material. Her bicycle throne will be displayed in the new design exhibition at the Musee des Arts Decoratifs in Paris.


Running from the 19th October, the Museum will showcase a unique panorama of modern and contemporary creations from the 1940s to the present day. The "Muda Walla" is made from bamboo stools, steel frame and recycled bicycle parts. It is part of the Bicycle Throne series that captures this fast disappearing vision of bicycle vendors framed in haloes of their own products, a common sighting in Indian.


The designer works with natural materials like wood, stone, terracotta, bamboo, jute and metal that are common to India. She also adds precious materials silver and gold leaf, semi-precious stones and animal bone to reflect the contrast of the visual landscape of urban India where its common to see a Bentley and a bullock cart in the same place.
