The Neo Kaansa collection by designer Fenny Ganatra for Formus embodied via The Living Suite is a curation of modern pieces with a timeless appeal outlined with Kaansa or brass. Fenny G’s vision behind the collection arose from the need to reboot classic forms through a vibrant use of colours and sumptuous elements of brass, which are the very inspiration behind the collection.
The existence and use of Kaansa can be traced back to the Indian subcontinent’s history for centuries. Designer Fenny Ganatra explores new routes to use this malleable element through statuesque pieces of furniture. The Neo Kaansa Collection of bespoke furniture made using rich, royal and classic colours, blends minimal designs with desired materials and a touch of Kaansa. Fenny Ganatra’s curious eye does a rendezvous with a broad spectrum of materials ranging from premium natural wood and wood veneer to brass pipes and brass veneer. These accents in brass lend a nude opulence to modern and avant garde design.
Besides Kaansa, the inspiration behind the collection’s design language comes to life through Fenny G’s collaboration with Formus. Formus’s take on timeless forms, and brand Fenny G’s fresh perspective, brings together an artistic mélange of tailored furniture, the Neo Kaansa Collection.

Carrying this vision forward, FORMUS announces its first collaboration with acclaimed interior designer Fenny Ganatra (winner of Red Dot award). The collaboration is marked with a Neo Kaansa collection embodied via ‘The Living Suite’. The Living Suite is a curation of modern statuesque pieces of furniture with a timeless appeal outlined with Kaansa or brass. Fenny Ganatra’s curious eye does a rendezvous with a broad spectrum of materials ranging from premium natural wood and wood veneer to brass pipes and brass veneer.
The Living Suite exudes a contemporary finesse that is resultant of a cohesive combination of unique material, carefully chosen rich, royal and classic colours and elite modernist style. The first collection comprises of four signature special edition pieces, which include: a Center Table, a Milvio Ottoman, a Ritz Sofa and a Beizer armchair.
Six distinct elements make the story of the Center Table playing with diverse forms of wooden, marble and brass blocks inter-layered and combined to create a dramatic juxtaposition of opaque and transparent.
The Milvio Ottoman on the other hand is brilliantly crafted with minimal lines and is inspired by Ponte Mitvio, a bridge over the Tiber in northern Italy. The edges in brass trace the outline without overpowering the essence of form. A diverse piece of furniture it can be used in more ways than one.
The Ritz sofa with a brass profile running on its periphery is a perfect blend of superior comfort using classic form and is crafted with plush fabric.
The Living Suite setting gets completed with The Beizer blue armchair that combines the plushness of velvet with magnificent metal work. It’s unorthodox and playful and makes a statement designed to turn heads.
