Finally a book on African design that celebrates the contemporary! It is packed with works that show how the continents rich array of craft traditions are being preserved and revived with an exciting contemporary twist. An introductory section identifies the sophistication, vitality, diversity and soulfulness of the past that is now being harnessed to develop a contemporary African identity. Sections on furniture, textiles, ceramics, basketry and lighting bring together the work of respected designers, makers and organizations based on the African continent or part of the diaspora. Celebrating the wider changes occurring across Africa, the fifty or so designers and crafters included have been chosen for their innovative approach to creating sophisticated products. Many of the pieces demonstrate how sustainability and recycling are often of the utmost importance. The book is completed by a glossary and bibliography.
