Morphing furniture has been ingeniously crafted to accommodate a total of 16 distinct positions, each of which has been meticulously tailored to cater to the nuanced preferences of the human form. This unique design was motivated by the Nitya Shakti Yantras, which are renowned for their depiction of the 16 phases of the moon.

The expression ‘yantra’ is derived from the Sanskrit root ‘yam’ – essentially meaning liberation from birth and rebirth & Nitya meaning eternal. The inspiration conveys a metaphorical message regarding the perpetuity of the craft's rebirth.


Material: Silver on Iron, Reclaimed Walnut & Sapele
