Palakkad Chair


The Palakkad Chair is designed by Goa based artist and furniture designer Nityan Unnikrishnan for Phantom Hands. An early version of the chair was designed and fabricated by Nityan in 2013. This version became a starting point for the collaboration between Nityan and Phantom Hands in 2022 and evolved into its present form over the course of several iterations.

Inspired by Japanese-American furniture maker George Nakashima’s work, the spindle is the central character of the teakwood chair; with slim forms in the backrest and thicker versions for the legs of the Palakkad chair. The spindle shape is also prominent in the four crossbars underneath.

The cane pattern for the chair features a unique wrap around weave that was developed specifically for the Palakkad Chair, making the seat ergonomically comfortable. This solid teak wood chair is lightweight, robust and can be used as a dining chair, desk chair or as a stand-alone living room chair.
