Wedding Installation

Wedding Installation

In November, we teamed up with @withlovenilma to craft some magic - this mesmerizing cane installation that gracefully weaved through the wedding venue!
It got us thinking about how natural materials go beyond the aesthetic appeal of wedding decor.
Here are 7 ways natural materials transform your wedding decor!


1. Sustainability at its Core: Choosing natural materials not only adds a natural and unprocessed touch but also ensures guilt-free celebrations. These materials can seamlessly return to the earth after use.


2. Smart Reuse: Unlike materials that end up in recycling or as waste, bamboo and cane can be easily reused. After adorning your wedding, they can find new life in furniture, cladding, fencing, or even construction. This sustainable reuse approach significantly reduces costs.


3. Natural Harmony: Enhance your wedding's aesthetics by complementing bamboo and cane decor with other natural elements like flowers and leaves. The combination creates a captivating and cohesive visual appeal.


4. Organic Forms and Flows: In contrast to materials like plywood, steel, MDF, Plaster of Paris, and synthetic paints, bamboo and cane offer the advantage of creating more organic and flowing forms.


5. Cost-Effective Decor: The reuse of bamboo and cane in various applications post-wedding not only contributes to sustainability but also lowers the overall cost of wedding decor.


6. Lower Carbon Footprint: Opting for sustainable materials like bamboo and cane consumes less energy, resulting in a lower carbon footprint. It's a conscious choice that aligns with eco-friendly practices.


7. Renewable Growth: Bamboo, in particular, exhibits a unique quality — the more you harvest, the more it grows. This stands in contrast to wood, especially plywood, which relies on deforestation. Embracing bamboo promotes a renewable and sustainable source for your wedding decorations.

Beach Side Wedding Installation at Grand Hyatt Goa

Beach Side Wedding Installation at Grand Hyatt Goa

In the coastal town of Goa, where the waves kissed the shoreline and the breeze carried the whispers of love, a remarkable project took shape through a collaboration that could only be described as magical! It all began with a vision, a dream to create an installation like no other, and at the helm of this dream was @devikanarainandcompany


The picturesque Grand Hyatt Panjim set the stage for an ambitious vision: to create a majestic mandap, standing 30 feet high and spanning 25 feet.
However, the challenge was that the soft, golden sand meant no digging, and the ever-changing winds had to be considered.


The solution was to anchor bamboo pieces to a robust metal base plate, forming a stunning lattice, with a grand total of 30,000 bamboo elements, meticulously interconnected.


Then came the race against time. With just two days for installation, the daunting task of connecting the numerous bamboo pieces at around eight different points loomed large. That's when the trusty nail gun emerged as a hero. Its role was not limited to the initial installation; it also played a pivotal part during the rapid dismantling process, which was to be completed within just a few hours.

Stainless steel nails facilitated a quick and efficient disassembly on-site. A dedicated team of 18 worked in shifts, swiftly removing the bamboo, with the nails later extracted at their workshop.


The end result was nothing short of breathtaking. The mandap, standing proud and majestic, and with Devika Narain & Company's enchanting artistry, exuded an ethereal beauty that harmonized perfectly with the gentle, romantic ambiance of the beachside wedding.
It was a testament to the power of collaboration, a manifestation of a dream that had been envisioned and brought to life.

Dubki, Goa

Dubki, Goa

Nestled on a cliff overlooking the enchanting Ozran Beach, @dubkigoa, designed by @mazeconcept.design, is a harmonious blend of captivating views, pulsating music, delectable cuisine, and the vibrant spirit that defines Goa. Our work at Dubki focused on four pivotal elements - bamboo cladding, fabric work, the DJ booth, and jute rope work.

Let's dive into the intricate details of the bamboo cladding that graces the fluidic roof, mirroring the graceful undulations of ocean waves. The challenge was substantial - maintaining a consistent pattern as bamboo tapers from 1.5 inches at the bottom to 1.25-1 inch after 10 feet. Our solution? Cutting-edge technology, a proprietary machine meticulously shaving the bamboo to a uniform radius of 1.25 inches, ensuring a seamless finish. The bamboo, then sanded with 80-grade and 220-grade grit paper, exuded a smooth, polished allure. Each piece, cut to various lengths, was placed radially in sections every foot, breathing life into the ceiling's wavelike form, infusing warmth with the natural tones of bamboo.

Moving on to the creation of the portable DJ booth at @dubkigoa, envisioned by @mazeconcept.design to embody the lively spirit of Goa. The quarter-sphere design aimed for portability, prompting us to engineer a structure easily transportable from Bangalore to Goa. As the render transformed into reality, our team meticulously assembled the booth on-site, solving a giant jigsaw puzzle.

Initially planning bamboo cladding, we opted for the extraordinary – the world's most premium cane, Karnataka cane. Our artisans from Bangalore joined us on-site, skillfully bending the cane to match the structure's curves. The result was breathtaking! To add rustic charm and conceal metal surfaces, coconut rope was employed, providing not just structural integrity but also enhancing the booth's aesthetics with a natural, earthy touch.

From render to an eye-catching DJ booth, our journey was a thrilling blend of creativity and technical prowess, perfectly aligning with the lively ambiance of Dubki Goa. We are elated to have been part of this fun and transformative process, bringing a vision to life!

Como Goa

Como Goa

From an ecological invasion to building material: Lantana camara finds new purpose in architecture and design.
Lantana camara, an invasive shrub, now threatens 40% of India's tiger range.
It's quite alarming, especially since the Shivalik hills, Central India, and Southern Western Ghats are the hardest hit areas with it occupying about 300,000 sq. km of land.


Creative solutions to tackle this problem include using its branches as a building material. Providing this opportunity to the Nilgiri tribals not only offers them a source of income but also helps safeguard our forests.
This repurposed shrub presents a new opportunity for architects and designers to use in their projects, from fencing to cladding to furniture and potentially even lighting and home decor.
While creative, this solution highlights the urgent need for biodiversity monitoring and restoration studies to protect against invasive species.


Nonetheless, this is a positive step towards making the best of a difficult situation and turning an invasive species into a valuable building material!
