Gandhi Chair or the Tub chair, as it is popularly known locally is a fabulous chair! The origins of the design are not clear, but it is seems to have its genesis in the art deco style. Possibly, improvised to suit the local conditions & simplified to suit the mass market needs.
These chairs were used extensively in the government run schools & offices right till the 1990’s and to an extent, have even become synonymous with them! Post millennium, as India embarked upon its journey towards economic prosperity, these chairs were, rapidly phased out giving way to ‘new’ & ‘better‘ designs.
The TUB Chair is an adaptation of this design
