Here are some more information by Doshi Levien:’Chandlo’ by Doshi Levien for BD Barcelona design.
‘Chandlo’ was designed as a special prototype 2012 BD Barcelona for the House. This was an installation by Doshi Levien for IMM Cologne, which showed their vision of a perfect home. The House consisted of interconnected rooms, which were open to a central courtyard. The different areas of the House were mainly dependent on furniture and objects to define space.’Chandlo’ has been in the locker room with architectural juxtaposition of forms and levels, so that he could be seen from all sides. ‘Chandlo’ means moon shape and also Bindi, which is the colored dot on the forehead of Indian women.
The seemingly abstract composition by the mirror, wardrobe and surface is based on the daily ritual of dressing and grooming
Our intention was to create a composition, in which the elements are not moving. To get the simplicity of this deconstructed arrangement, we had to hide the production methods. This has caused many technical challenges, we have masterfully overcome BD Barcelona. The dressing table is accompanied by a rotating stool with silver embroidered lines on upholstery leather.
