The Muṅgāru Collection is part of the contemporary modern range of furniture designed by Milan-based furniture designers INODA+SVEJE for Phantom Hands over 2017-18.

The collection draws inspiration in equal parts from the modernist legacy of Chandigarh’s mid-century furniture, and the level of skill that traditional Indian craft-based production offers. The Japanese and Danish design traditions of Kyoko Inoda and Nils Sveje are also evident in the designs.

Muṅgāru is a Kannada word (language spoken locally in Bangalore) used to describe the gentle and rejuvenating pre-monsoon rains. INODA+SVEJE's first visit to Phantom Hands in 2017 coincided with the onset of the monsoon season, and the name became apt for the first collection they conceived for Phantom Hands.
