Designed in collaboration with Kam Ce Kam and The Wicker Story, creating a unique collection of sculptural, functional art pieces.
The technique uses hand crafted metal structures to act as the base for the wicker to be moulded around, combining old and new forms of craftsmanship.
Size: 45cm H x 150cm W x 45cm D
Each piece is inspired by an aspect of traditional craft whilst telling the story of the maker and the materials used. The pieces are inspired by the colonial era, adapted to suit today’s contemporary lifestyle - a medley of the cultures of India and Britain, being brought to life in the 21st century.
Jehanara Knowles - The creative director and designer of Kam Ce Kam wanted to establish a brand that not only focuses on the beauty and simplicity of furniture and interior designs, but something that would also bring to light the extraordinary craftsmanship that exists in India.
Each piece, beginning with the skilled history behind the artisan, incorporate age-old techniques such as cane weaving and stone carving. It continues onto the materials where timber, stone, leather and cane are organically fused with seat pads filled with coir and table-tops created from marble offcuts.
