• Installation of an electro-mechanical installation for the Sadhu Vaswani Museum, Pune:
The installation depicts the saint Sadhu Vaswani journeying on a boat on the Hoogly River through a series of 16 foot long waves, which move to and fro in respect to each other to create a wave pattern. Boats are attached to the waves, which move along it with the help of motors and proximity sensors.

Amongst their recent projects they have been making home furniture for individuals and families. As seen the design uses traditional carpentry methods using teak wood for the wall cabinets that hang from the much celebrated 'shaker pegs' on the wall. These ‘shaker pegs’ run all along the wall length so that one can also hang other kitchen accessories like pots, pans and veggie bags.
‘Rushi’ furniture range - a second project for the family, involves making a study desk with chair and a book-shelf for children.
