Redesign is an emerging field of interior design that reuses things and materials to enhance sustainability in homes and work spaces.
INTEARC was conducted with the sole intention of providing the students a chance to explore the inventor in them through sustainable designs. Over 100 students (1st, 2nd & 3rd yr) in a group designed different pieces of furniture and aptly executed them using the recycled materials.

The specialty about the designs was that they were created out of organic stuffs, like- paper and glass after days of hard work.
