Go green, save the environment - has been a constant concern put across by people from all walks of life. Raising the issue and lending their contribution are the two young environmental architects- Alankrita Soni and Smita Dixit Mehra.
The duo have designed Dreamatix, an exhibition consisting of pieces of art, sculpture and lifestyle products that are contemporary, trendy, fashionable and yet sustainable and most importantly - environment friendly.
The underlying theme of the 20 products on display is to address issues related to environmental degradation, global warming and climate change in a very unique way through art and life style products divided in four categories - The Marine Life, The Plant Life, The Animal Life and the Change in Climate.
Some of their exhibits are, Sangmungia- The Coral Clock-Mirror and the Table where they have used waste PVC pipes from construction sites to create it. Suryamukhi - The Sunflower Chair is a beautiful well-crafted chair which takes its inspiration from a Sunflower and is made out of waste tyres.
‘As an environmentally conscious and nature loving architects we always wanted to bring style in living through green ways and to help establish a new fashion that appreciates nature. Each product that we create is a shadow of our underlying design philosophy. We believe in re-using and re-creating before recycling – Upcycling is the way forward,’ said the duo.
