Objects based on African cultures are all the rage! Here, Sebastian Herkner is inspired by Turkish delight for his Delight seating collection at Pulpo, while Pierre Charrié revisits traditional percussion instruments with his Campanes tables. Drums, masks, sweets, totems, or jewelry… all are infused with a Neo-African spirit.
TELEPHONE WIRE BASKETRY
For centuries, Zulus have been known for their art of weaving natural fibers (palm leaves, dried weeds...). However in the past few years, these ancestral techniques have been applied to industrial materials -such as telephone or polished copper wire. This has lead to modern creations with an ever evolving graphic design. Our telephone wire baskets are food safe and can be washed with soapy water.
