Product Description

The Tangāli Day Bed is part of the second collection designed by INODA+SVEJE for Phantom Hands. Innovation in cane weaving pattern was a hallmark of the design process for the Tangāli collection. Tangāli means cool breeze in the Kannada language - spoken locally in Bangalore where the Phantom Hands workshop is based.

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. They are usually made with wood and woven fabric or ropes. Pierre Jeanneret is credited with designing several modernist variants of the Day Bed during his stay in Chandigarh in the 1950s, some just for his personal use.
