  • Catalogue Essay

    This work is among the few limited edition pieces that renowned industrial designer Satyendra Pakhalé has created to date. Active within the sphere of industrial and architectural design, Pakhalé incorporates organic motifs and craftsmanship with elements from his Indian cultural heritage. The bulbous base of the chair is offset by the narrow, pillar-like supports that function as vases holding flowers. The Indian tradition of ritualistic offering is incorporated into unique design, forming a union between east and west.
