In the house of bamboo

Ahmedabad is not a typical bamboo city, but there is Rebecca Reubens of Rhizome. She works at the intersection of design, craft and sustainability and her core area of expertise is bamboo.
We were lucky to meet her at the Rhizome studio. Only a small door sign told us that we were at the right place. But it became obvious once we entered her studio-workshop: walls covered in bamboo, craftsmen working on bamboo hangers and the complete interior design consists of bamboo furniture.
It was very interesting to get an idea of her design thinking and to see the products that evolve from it.
And now we had thirst for action and wanted to work hands-on! So let’s get some bamboo. But this was easier said than done. The city is like a gigantic labyrinth with friendly people and confusing advises. After hours of wandering around in the heat we finally found what we were looking for.
