Anger games

Mumbaikars ko gussa kyon aata hai? Think it over in this concept chair by Design Temple.

Mumbai seethes with relentless energy. Impetuous and impatient, the city never sleeps. Lack of sleep and rest manifests in discord and anger.

Our Halo Seat seeks to placate this wrath by letting you have some time for yourself. Whenever you need a moment of calm, settle into the Halo Seat and step away from the chaos.


The Halo Seat is inspired by the idea of the ubiquitous divine being found across India’s cultural landscape. It can find place in your home, at work, and public spaces as well.

Sink into this when...

You’ve spent four hours getting home from work just because Mumbai received 37 mm of rain – and need to think calmly of reasons you still want to live here.

Dhoble’s raided yet another bar you love, forcing you to entertain at home, and you need more seating in your living room.

You need to sit down after realising that the one-crore 1BHK flat you just bought in the suburbs is the same size as the maid’s room of a friend’s apartment in Bangalore.

You’ve had yet another spat with your parents, siblings or partner and need a quiet place to cool off.

You need to tune out the sounds of the roadside Ganesh pandal, the colony dandiya night, and the Diwali atom bombs by retreating to this seat and pulling on some

noise-cancelling headphones.

Think you're so angry with the city you could just spontaneously combust? This design firm invents a concept chair that just might let you chill.
