|Press Coming Soon!|
|The Pink Sink is, as the image indicates, a chair that looks like thereís no way you can sit on it... until you do, and then you realize itís very, very comfortable.
Itís available in colours other than pink, has removable covers, can be folded for transportation and storage, and is, well, plain sexy. The body is made from 100% stainless steel and the seat from three different material not including the eight years of toil that went into it.
Designed by Lekha Washington and prototyped over six years, this patented chair is as original as it gets.
|The easiest way to sit on the Pink Sink is, well, to just sit in it. Trust that it will not let you down because it has three layers of fabric, including a non-stretch inner layer to allow it to be as comfortable as it is visually playful.|
|Setup of the chair is an easy three step process.
Step one: Align the two beams together,
by holding the seat in place.
Step two: Slide one beam into its lower counterpart.
Step three: Insert the second beam into its lock in system.
Itís good to go!

Width : 38 inches
Materials used : Lycra, canvas, rubber foam,

Currently available in contrast colours,
throw-pillows for the Pink Sink have a C-clasp
in the colour of the chair so as to not slide
off it. The clasp allows you to attach it to
any part of the circumference.
Same or contrast colour stretch covers are available
with hidden hook fasteners to save one the fear of
staining the vast canvas of the Pink Sink.
Coming soon : Original art and custom cover prints!
|WILL IT TAKE MY WEIGHT?
The Pink Sink is comfortable for upto 120 Kgs. In the
unlikely event that you manage to break it within
the first two months, it is covered under warranty,
and we shall hire you as our new product tester.
WILL I REACH THE GROUND?
There is a non-stretch canvas layer in the sink
that self- limits, so it is unlikely that
you will reach the floor.
WILL IT SAG OR RIP SOON?
Like any upholstery, the Pink Sink will also
wear and tear, but the process is quite slow, and
after a couple of years, if you do notice a sag, itís nothing a
Pink Sink cover canít fix!
WILL IT RUST?
The Pink Sink is made of 100% stainless steel, so no,
it will not crumble.
CAN I COPY THE DESIGN?
The Pink Sink is an original design
and if you would like to copy it or make cheap
knock offs, we will take offence.
Just write to us, we will be happy to send you our
test pieces made with less expensive
WILL IT GET THROUGH MY DOORWAY?
Keeping space constraints in mind, the Pink Sink
is foldable into two parts, so it gets through most
doorways, and can be stored when not in use.

|A product worth making, we believe, is not merely decoration of an old concept, it is an original approach to a situation, seen through to its best possible conclusion. Itís a great idea delivered. Itís not the speech, or the accompanying booklet, itís that moment when someone looks at your product and goes "Whoa!".
We hope to create a range of pieces that are not stand alone - they need user interaction because we believe our customers are intelligent, creative folk who would enjoy being inspired.
At Ajji, to remind ourselves of this, we whet all our endeavors with the SOUP philosophy : are they Simple, Original, User driven Pieces? Simple Is usually never simple to achieve and it can be quite frustrating when someone has thought up that idea before you, but we believe there is always a great idea that hasnít been done yet.
User interaction is our personal design brief, or constraint, as it were. Additionally, we want our work to last forever, so we do use the absolute best materials that we possibly can- even in the nooks and crannies that you canít see.
Over and above anything else, we are quite in love with what we do, weíre a bit stupid like that.
|India by it sheer population, caters to a mass market. A market where products are made in numbers, and, by and large, there really isnít that much time or money for R&D.
At Ajji, we beg to differ. We would like to create products that uphold intellectual property, and do their time in the prototype stage so that the final product really is at good as it gets.
Products here are original patented designs and in an environment where duplication is an easy option, we intend to still continue to stick our neck out for that one of a kind idea .
|Ajji is a tiny company with big dreams started by Lekha Washington, a product designer, sculptor, actor and teller of silly stories. It is named after Bhavatharani Ghorpade, a.k.a. AJJI to all who knew her, a woman who's creative,
determined, pig-headed and a pathbreaker.
If you are an artist looking to collaborate, an organization looking for similarly original design solutions or a venture capitalist looking to invest in original and practical work, please do get in touch!
|The Dot is an exercise in drama and simplicity, subtlety and precision. Available in a dramatic crimson hue, it transforms a space completely.
It easily hinges on the wall, much like an LED television, and is very comfortable to sit on.
Designed by Lekha Washington as a part of the Sink collection, the Dot is a visual mirage, channelising several references, from the bindi to the circle of the sun, or "Hinomaru".
|The Dot is installed as a latch-on system, which easily locks into place. In order to take the dot off the wall (for re-upholstery or cleaning) all one needs to do is push upwards and unhook it.
Our skilled technicians will undertake the installation.
Covers of the Dot do not require for the piece to be taken off the wall, as they can be easily slipped off.
|Diameter: 60 inches
Weight : 6.5 kg (approx)
Number of bolts: 8
Materials used : Foam, fabric, steel
|Is it heavy?
Since the entire dot has been fabricated using lightweight steel, it is not heavy and is easily portable.
Does it cause wall damage?
No. There is a bracket system bolted onto the wall, which is as neat as the one that holds an LCD TV.
Can it take my weight?
It has been tested up to 200 kg, so yes, it can.
It looks like it could be straight-backed or uncomfortable. Is it?
It has contoured foam backing to allow back support. Additionally, the bend of the ring has been ergonomically perfected to allow maximum comfort. A fully supported cushion seat is also inbuilt.
What if I want to change its location?
You can change the location any time you like. We will be happy to send our technicians to help you, or your local carpenter can re-install it for you.
What if it gets stained?
The cover is removable and washable - and you donít even have to take off the dot!
|The DOT comes with a removable red cover that
can easily be slipped on and off.

are also available.
