On Our Radar: Shefali Studio, Gujarat, India

This fashion boutique’s sustainable design taps recycled materials to provide a contemporary look and feel
Posted January 25, 2021

Shefali Studio, a recently launched women’s wear boutique in Vadodara, Gujarat, India, designed by Manoj Patel Studios, reuses scrap materials throughout its interior, transforming it into a multi-layered, visual experience. 

Materials were chosen in a palette of contrasting tones, derived from old clay roof tiles and recycled window shutters to unused sample tiles and beer bottles. Old seating was updated for a fresh look, and recycled table legs serve as door handles. Overlapping circular rings were used to form floral hook ends for hanging product. Throughout, the palette of recycled objects offers a fresh, contemporary aesthetic that celebrates its uniqueness.
