Report: Chandigarh Chairs (recipients of the DHS Research Access Grant [Professional])

Petra Seitz, Nia Thandapani and Gregor Wittrick report on their 2022 fieldwork into the Chandigarh Chairs project which involved an initial trip to Chandigarh, supported by the DHS Research Access Grant (Professional)

The Chandigarh Chairs project’s initial trip to Chandigarh was undertaken as
the first of many such trips to observe and document material objects and
their use, to map the realities of the city and its furniture against previous
claims made, and the begin to develop a nuanced and textured understanding
of the city and reality of Chandigarh beyond a two dimensional idea of a place.
