Canoe-shaped Console Table


It is a piece that showcases beauty with functionality as it has a chessboard incorporated on the natural solid beech wood top and a modern black steel finish base. Inspiration for this piece: This piece is inspired by a canoe boat which is mainly used for fishing in most coastal towns in Africa I came across a canoe for the first time in Accra at a fish market. I was intrigued by it’s shape, the way the fishermen would maneuver it into the sea and it’s importance in their livelihood. The canoe played a great role in their daily routine and after their hard work at sea, they would pass their free time playing a game of draft/chess while the women would sell the catch of the day.
