ManduBy Eckart Muthesius
In 1929 the Maharajah of Indore commissioned Eckart Muthesius to build and furnish his Manik Bagh palace. Completed four years later, the palace was a masterpiece of the Art Deco style. Muthesius complemented his architecture with his own furniture and lamp designs. The Maharajah had countless servants. Eckart Muthesius added to them yet another: his valet Mandu serves up an elegant appearance with typical Art Déco flourish. Very feminine and yet – or perhaps for this reason – used mostly by gentlemen who do not want to entrust their business jackets to a simple coat rack. The original chrome-plated version reflects the environment, whereas the new colours, black and bronze, especially emphasize the lines of the design.
