Franco-Germany show held on innovative use of jute

A joint project titled, 'Franco-German Jute Project’, organised by Alliance Française de Dhaka and Goethe-Institut Bangladesh, was exhibited on the premises of new Franco-German Embassy on Monday.

Cultural Affairs Minister Asaduzzaman Noor attended the function as the chief guest. French Ambassador to Bangladesh Sophie Aubert and German Ambassador to Bangladesh Dr Thomas Prinz co-hosted the event showing the innovative ways of jute use.

The latest Franco-German cultural project, ‘Jute and Composite, Tradition and Innovation’, was designed in order to develop innovative solutions to support newer ways of using historically significant jute fibre in Bangladesh. With support from Bangladesh-based NGO JuteLab, a design competition was opened to call for creative furniture designs made of jute.

The project started in July 2016, offering students of architecture or fine arts, young artists and architects to submit a design proposal for a piece of furniture implementing the innovative jute composite resin transfer moulding process developed by Jute Lab (Gold of Bengal) at Atroshi.

Eight finalists were selected and winners were invited for a weeklong training under the guidance of French professional designer Antoine Gripay, design manager and founder of studio Katra. Two teams were formed to work together on two different projects, from design development to prototype production.

By using jute fibre composite and taking inspiration from Bangladeshi culture, they developed an armchair and side tables. The prototypes were presented during the session. unb
