The Tangāli Bench was the first product prototyped during INODA+SVEJE’s second visit to our workshop in August 2018. Having seen the level of skill and dexterity of our cane weavers during their first visit in 2017, they pushed our weavers to make patterns that are not traditional to Indian furniture. The contours of the bench are completely shaped by hand. The bench can be used either for seating or as a side table.
We decided to name the collection after the cool monsoon breeze that accompanied their visit to Bangalore – Tangāli means cool breeze in the Kannada language (spoken locally in Bangalore where the Phantom Hands workshop is based).
