African Inspired Design


I really appreciate designers that focus on taking community or cultural skills and attempting to position them into the mainstream marketplace thereby protecting not only their culture but their livelyhood as well. I believe that if everyone could earn a living doing what they love the world would be a very different place. This "Se'gou" chair was designed by Cheick Diallo, see http://www.amaridianusa.com/

How true that idea is, I'm currently on that mission while job searching, sigh!
