"Storage & Stools" is part of the ‘Being Inspired and Inspirational” series by People of the Sun, where designers are inspired by indigenous skills in Malawi and in turn inspire local artisans to preserve, revive and challenge their crafts through design.
Ineke’s “Storage & Stools” is a collection, where Design is no longer just a question of functionality but transcends into a tool that empowers local artisans in Malawi and keeps indigenous skills alive. Design is not meant as aid, but as a component for setting up sustainable cooperative businesses.
