STORAGE & STOOLS, INEKE HANS COLLECTION BY PEOPLE OF THE SUN
Malawi-based People of the Sun will launch a collection of baskets, stools and trays designed by Dutch designer Ineke Hans. The collection uses local materials and techniques, telling a story about design, making, tradition and modern living. Through this collaboration, design is no longer simply a vehicle for functionality but becomes a tool that empowers local artisans in Malawi and keeps indigenous skills alive. Design is not meant as an aid, but as a component for setting up sustainable cooperative businesses.
