Designing Indian sitting style furniture for contemporary lifestyle
Guide: Prof. Uday A. Athvankar

An extensive study of the habits of people in Indian sitting style was carried out by testing a study rig. The solution came in the form of a stand alone single seat chair made up of Stainless steel pipe structure with bent plywood for the base and woven jute for the backrest. A special support at arms level along with a specially contoured polyurethane foam seat is also provided to fulfil the requirements of the Indian sitting postures.

The proposed design would help to reposition the Indian sitting style furniture as it is suitable for the day to day activities and fits in contemporary interiors, thus fulfilling the demand for the specific kind of furniture in the market.
