Elements of Form

The Phan is a fusion of Nakashima’s authentic Japanese techniques and traditional Indian culture, both of which manifest simplicity in every sense of the word. While the modern Indian society is turning to western versions
of the same idea without acknowledging its origin, the Phan is a reminder of the spiritual and health bene ts of eating and bathing while sitting cross-legged on wooden stools. Phan is a Manipuri word that literally translates to stool. The correct way of sitting on it is cross-legged for men, and with one leg crossed over the other for women. This allows comfort, keeping in mind their traditional clothing.
