Decor items and Accessories are designed to enhance the room’s character, provide eye-catching elements that add colour, texture, and visual appeal to your desks and tables. As part of the exhibition event – KOAN that happened in 2017 in collaboration with three other designers – Ms. Jaba Champaneria, Ms. Mili Dalal and Ms. Niti Shah – OBL/QUE made several beautiful and useful objects that could be used to brighten up your spaces.
The series included items such as wooden trays, key holders, photo frames, table mats, cushion covers, coasters, pen stands, table runners, key chains, etc. in addition to several kinds of wall art objects.
From turmeric yellows to sindoor oranges to gulaal reds and so on, these are sacred and auspicious colors of our context. Invoking a joyous and celebratory feeling, this makes our Festive Palette, whose corresponding motif is Ganesha! Being the lord of new beginnings, this was apt to become KOAN’s first theme.
The lotus, emerging from the water and standing above it – undrenched and unsullied – has come to be accepted as a symbol of enlightenment and purity of mind. Not only is the lotus in bloom a pretty sight, it evokes positive thoughts in one who links it with his own journey on the spiritual path.
For the next theme in the KOAN series, we dived deep into the ocean and came up with one of the cutest and most fascinating creatures found there – a SEAHORSE! Did you know that Seahorses are a symbol of Patience, Friendliness, Perspective, Generosity, Persistence, and Contentment? So here comes a splash of blues and aquas with our Aquatic Theme!
Appearing out of nowhere the Hummingbird springs joy in the heart. Iridescent colors shimmering in the breeze, she pauses mid-air to drink in the sweet nectar that the flower so generously provides her. Hummingbird is a symbol of all things good.
