Each chair has a branded signature.
Mini Boga established her furniture brand Taaru in New Delhi at a time when there was little modern design in India. Her simple forms are solid and have a softness and grace similar to contemporaneous Brazilian design. Inspired by craft traditions, her designs take on a functionalist and minimalist approach.
She was the only one to offer her designers royalty for their design when all others simply copied foreign models from Bauhaus and international magazines.
