A Summer of Curious Content

From a film studio that wanted a series of quirky installations to a shoe brand that wanted upcycled installations. Flying piglets that met swinging tyres. Jumping cube-faced men that broke through walls and insect-creatures that perambulate shakily. Here is a sneak peek of works in progress and finished pieces. The creatures await in the sidelines while BBMP cleans up the streets.



The months prior to installation saw Georgie and Sarita driving to and fro with piggy parts.

A series of upcycled art installations created and curated by Trapeze for Puma to be displayed along the streets and public areas of Bangalore.  We worked with  a group of artists- Maya and her bench, Vivek and Nachi with their Cycle Creature, Pradeep and Nanaiah with tyres and Trapeze with Letters of Joy. Material was scoured from the Dovetail waste bin, from the City Market, cycle and tyre sheds.

Hello Kitty


Our initial assumptions of tiny UFOs (Unidentified Feline Objects) above our roof was confirmed with this sighting a few days ago. This one seemed to quite enjoy peering at us through the stairs. Beam us up, Kitty!

Trapeze @ Pune Design Festival '12

Earlier this year, Sarita and Ram were invited to speak at the Pune Design Festival- Design without Boundaries, organised by the Association of Designers of India.

Sarita and Ram's talk focused on the theme of the event- Design Without Boundaries. As designers, we are often slotted and boxed into certain stereotypes with respect to the kind of work that we do, the way we approach it and so on. But isn't that far from the case? We are constantly breaking down walls, donning different hats, learning new things, holding hands and taking leaps of faith.













The format of the Pune Design Festival was almost intimate in a sense, with more interaction between speakers and participants (especially students) than one usually sees in design events - the organisers had quite effectively broken the fourth wall. Groups of talks and subsequent panel discussions were followed by tea breaks and break-away sessions of workshops that allowed for more discussion to be generated on the topics at hand.
