P H A N T O M H A N D S'Phantom Hands' is a metaphor for generations of artisans whose contributions manifest in each piece of furniture we make. Phantom Hands makes handcrafted, design-driven contemporary furniture. Our workshop in Bangalore, India is an ecosystem of skilled carpenters, wood polishers, cane weavers, upholsterers, and tailors from craft communities across the country. We work with wood, fabrics, cane, metal, etc., and collaborate with furniture and textile designers to create collections that build on the heritage of Indian craftsmanship and design. Our furniture is a culmination of centuries of craft knowledge and skills, passed on from generation to generation. The name 'Phantom Hands' is an homage to the legacy of these past artisans whose contributions manifest in each piece we make. - Phantom Hands

S A N T A & C O L ESanta & Cole is a small, independent and global editor of design products, with its roots in Belloch (Barcelona, Spain). We have been editing since 1985, when the company was first founded. By editing we mean preparing a work for the public domain, we mean adapting an item for every one's use. More than eighty creators have contributed to a rich catalogue of furniture and lighting products originating in very different contexts, by renowned designers such as Antoni Arola, Miguel Milá, André Ricard and llmari Tapiovaara. What a book editor does with stories, we do with objects. Acute and attentive to quality and detail, Santa & Cole outsources all of its industrial production to an extensive network of suppliers, mainly in Spain, but also in other countries such as Japan. Our mission is to build, safeguard and disseminate knowledge through design objects. Objects whose quality is recognisable at the touch of a hand, and that enrich people’s lives, whether at home or in shared environments. Our philosophy is more modern than futurist and we are more intrigued by silence than by stridency. Our focus is not the present market, but the future one; not Barcelona, but the world; not fashion, but history.
