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.
