lounge chair designed for my graduation from coconut wood brass and leather.

To create a story that is as personal and unique as possible, I have taken my own roots and memories as a starting point. My process often starts in the supermarket because I use it as a DIY store for collecting materials to design. This time I walked through the supermarket with a personal story in mind, because I was born in Sri Lanka, and then I came across a coconut. A beautiful memory came to mind
I was on vacation in Sri Lanka and ate a coconut there. I even have a photo of the moment. This seemed like an appropriate starting point for my research.
