The Furniture Fair of Milan 2010 has brought us very elegant novelties, proposals of all kinds of furniture and a lot of application of color. One of those genius is the one presented by Eindhoven designers Boaz Cohen and Sayaka Yamamoto, from the studio BCXSY.
It is a collection of objects of interior decoration made with hundreds of coils of beads, of many colors, placed in a coiled form, simulating a kind of snake, inspired by traditional ceramic vases.
The name of the collection is Coiled and it's more than just a nice design, it's a charity project, it was created in collaboration with the Swedish society Editions in Craft in collaboration with the Siyazama Project, a collective of women who make objects by hand in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa.
Therefore, the entire collection is made with materials of local origin and consists of vases, pots and lamps, and the colors of each of the models were chosen by the women of Siyazama. A beautiful product, with perhaps tribal or ethnic touches and also with a solidary purpose.
