Tangāli Day Bed

The Tangāli Day Bed is part of the second collection designed by INODA+SVEJE for Phantom Hands. Innovation in cane weaving was a core part of the design process for this collection. 

The Day Bed is known as 'charpoy' in India and is an essential and historically significant piece of furniture. Versions of the charpoy are seen in most homes in rural India even today. It is usually made with wood and woven fiber or chord. Pierre Jeanneret is credited with designing several modernist variants of the Day Bed during his stay in Chandigarh in the 1950s. 

Tangāli means cool breeze in the Kannada language (spoken locally in Bangalore where the Phantom Hands workshop is based).
