Muṅgāru Lounge Chair

The Mugāru Lounge Chair is part of the 'contemporary modern'  Muṅgāru Collection designed by Milan based furniture designers INODA+SVEJE exclusively for Phantom Hands. The chair is compact, light and very comfortable; it can be used as an occasional chair or as a lounger. 
The design 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 word in the Kannada language (spoken locally in Bangalore where the Phantom Hands workshop is based) used to describe the gentle and rejuvenating pre-monsoon rains. The idea for the collection was conceived in the Phantom Hands workshop as the monsoon set in, and the name became apt.
