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.

Wood Finish Options
We offer this product in a choice of Natural Teak or Dark Stain. For Natural Teak finish, the wood is sanded to smoothness and transparent wood polish and sealer are applied with a soft cloth to bring out the natural golden brown colour of teak. For Dark Stain, a coat of teak stain is hand applied to give the wood a darker, deeper shade. The cane pattern specially developed by INODA+SVEJE for the Tangāli Collection is called the Wrap Around weave. It is a special weave with double strands of cane wrapped around the edges of the wooden frame of a bench or chair.
