Tranquebar Coffee Table is a collectible design piece that presents the ancient hand carving heritage of South India in dialogue with renowned contemporary designer Boris Berlin. Calyah’s new Nordic maximalism is expressed through the geometrical silhouette and the ancient hand carving craft. The organic shape combined with strong materiality tells a unique story to be passed on to the next generation.
The acclaimed designer Boris Berlin and Calyah’s founder Nigel Majakari travelled together through rural villages and along the Bay of Bengal coast of Tamil Nadu in search of the finest ancient craftsmanship. Meeting with traditional artisans to learn about the culture of stone craftsmanship, their journey and meetings resulted in a collaboration with the finest skilled artisans. Finding his inspiration in the colours, the shapes, and the culture of Tamil Nadu the distinctive pattern and organic shapes materialised in collaboration with master craftsman Mahdevan and his artisanal family.
