Mandu Valet Stand

Eckart Muthesius, 1932

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.

Entrust this valet stand with your suit – it will keep it crease-free until the next morning.

Eckart Muthesius

At the age of 24, in 1933, architect Eckart Muthesius already created a complete work of modernist art: For the Manik Bagh palace of the Maharajah of Indore, he not only designed the architecture but also part of the furniture, and combined it with the progressive designs by Marcel Breuer, Charlotte Perriand, and Eileen Gray.
