The 'Project Chandigarh' collection is our homage to modernist design fuelled by the making of the city of Chandigarh, the first planned city of independent India, in the 1950s. Our re-editions of the mid-century furniture created for the city follow the craftsmanship and philosophy of making that governed their first versions.
Improving upon the original designs structurally and materially, our furniture remains true to their handcrafted carpentry and uses traditional joinery techniques. As in the past, the natural rattan cane used for the seats and backs of our chairs are peeled and hand woven by hand, by highly skilled weavers with generations of craft knowledge.
