Details:
Lahmu was one of Discovered project initiated by Wallpaper* magazine & AHEC and exhibited in the Design Museum in London in September 2021. The sculptural pieces serve as a side table or stools and together as a bench or as a low sideboard, inspired by bunker architecture. I chose two contrasting woods: one half in American cherry, for its inherent warmth, and one half in red oak, its surface burned with the Japanese burning method called Shou sugi ban. The name Lahmu comes from Mesopotamian mythology of a protective deity that was supposed to ward off demons and sickness.
