Repetition in Form

2015

I am I’s collection for FA254 and Monoqi has been inspired by the exquisite natural materials harnessed from the African continent, in particular Ebony (Diospyros Crassiflora). With a legacy that harks back to the Ancient Egyptian Pharoahs and the Kings of Benin, Ebony has been prized for its stunning rich dark colour and its unerring resilience.

The Fettered Geometry Collection features individually handcrafted ebony sculpted into ‘rocks’, irregularly faceted like a precious stone. This dark, delicately grained wood is worked with value and consideration, by skilled Kenyan artisans and unexpectedly combined with the bright warmth of brass, creating sculptural art for the body plus a small touch of whimsy
