Lounge table known as "coffee table" in solid teak black lacquered. Rectangular top made out of a glass slab, fitting into a runner and resting on a central rail. Pair of "compass" type side legs supporting the body with an open compartment.
The black lacquered Chandigarh furniture was designed as a protective measure and for easier cleaning. It was therefore found in cafeterias and university restaurants, as well as medical and hospital centres.
