Product Story

Drawing inspiration from his African Cultural heritage, Mac has created a furniture piece which is in tune with the ideas of Afrocentrism and Afrofuturism. Through a composition of powerful, spear-like forms, an encompassing backrest and a vivid, ultramarine hue, the designer has created a visually intense object designed to dominate and overwhelm its surroundings. Much like a throne, this dominating ash structure is intended to frame, enhance and empower its human subject. Having been eased into a nonchalant sitting position, the user is then encouraged to investigate and explore the sculpted forms and intricacies that hide below the intense blue stain.
