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, including the spiral-shaped umbrella stand Usha coiling upwards like a charmed snake. The original chrome-plated version reflects the environment, whereas the new colours, black and bronze, especially emphasize the lines of the design.
Designed at a time when walking sticks and canes accompanied cosmopolitan men as a fashion accessory, Usha is above all used as an umbrella stand today and adds glamour to your wardrobe.
Flat steel, powder-coated in black or bronze, or chrome-plated. Base wood, satin lacquered in black. Drip pan sheet steel black, bronze or grey lacquered.

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.
