Baptist

2023

  • Edition : Colonial warriors

Baptist beckons you to pause and take a seat, if only for a fleeting moment. It encourages a brief interlude of reflection and a stolen moment of daydreaming. With its low, grounded design, Baptist offers an invitation to discover a new perspective.

Vibrant colors and the introduction of new materials infuse a playful spirit into these pieces, while simultaneously accentuating the skill and artistry of our ancestors. What was once purely utilitarian and functional now undergoes a metamorphosis into a tribute. This tribute beckons one to take a seat, offering a fresh vantage point to contemplate the world around us. It encourages a reassessment of the status quo and prompts reflection on the aspects of life, both personal and societal, that we often overlook or take for granted.

Colonial Warriors comprises a collection of casted stools crafted from natural materials. These stools serve as replicas of the original wooden pieces once crafted in the workshop of our great-grandfather and traded in African markets. Through the process of casting, we not only replicate but also reimagine the essence of the originals.
