Designer: Lincoln Kayiwa
Nzela is a sturdy modular table set made of birch plywood. It takes only 3 minutes to set up this no-tool setup table. You may seamlessly conjoin – in whichever direction – as many tables. This knockdown piece can be easily dismantled too. Use it for dining, as conference table, for a ping-pong match or just as a statement piece.

Nzela table is inspired by the De Stijl movement and is homage to designer’s grandmother.

You have been checkmated! ha-ha ha!
Indian furniture and decor market is at the moment filled with imported(foreign) goods or Chinese stuff. To find a true Indian designer who has merged tradition and need to modern day design is a very difficult task.
So when I found designer Krishnakumar’s site I was excited. Why? You can see for yourself.
He describes his products as:
combination of warm and cold material which is very characteristic of Indian craft products.
Not only he has designed these warm wood winners he has also experimented with palm leaves. Using natural dyes he has got these amazing effects.
Krishnakumar’s wearables are also techno delights.
(27/05/09 -Edit: I have lost designer Krishnakumar’s links. It seems he has moved away. I haven’t found his new site so far. If you know or come accross his new site, please let me know. Thanks!)
