Banu

Designed 1931

Banu is yet another gem from the Jewel Garden, which was the name of the Maharajah‘s palace of Indore for which Eckart Muthesius designed this stool. Through the use of polished stainless steel and a highly demanding working process, the frame appears, from all sides, to be made of a single piece. The exquisite, elegant stool decorated the bathroom of the Maharani. A slightly different version travelled on tracks through India – in the legendary saloon carriage of the Maharajah.

Base chrome-plated flat steel. Beech seat frame. Upholstery polyurethane with polyester fibre. Cover in fabric or leather. Changeable gliders in felt or plastic. Details and colours see price list.

Designer

Following studies at the Associated State School for Applied Arts in Berlin and the London Polytechnic, Eckart Muthesius became a master student in the studio of his father, Hermann Muthesius, the founder of the German Werkbund. In 1929, Muthesius met Prince Yeshwant Rao Holkar Bahadur in Oxford, the later Maharajah of Indore, who commissioned him to build and furnish his palace „Manik Bagh”. 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. He went on to take up a post as head of the Board of Planning and Restoration of the State of Indore from 1936 to 1939. When the war broke out, he was forced to flee India and return to Berlin, where he worked as a freelance architect.
