“Chair-One” first introduced when I participated in @kbshowhouse is the first of several pieces included in my ongoing design experimentation: “OBIA”⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ OBIA OR “Obeah” is a system of spiritual and healing practices developed among enslaved West Africans in the West Indies. Obeah is difficult to define, as it is not a single, unified set of practices; the word "Obeah" was historically not often used to describe one's own practices. Obeah is similar to other Afro-American religions such as Palo, Haitian Vodou, Santería, and Hoodoo in that it includes communication with ancestors and spirits and healing rituals.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #furniture #furnituredesign ⠀ #architectureofthebody⠀ #interiordesign #interiors #interiorarchitecture #architecture⠀ #spiritual #creation #oftheearth⠀ #metaphor #poetry #thebody .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ “Chair-One” available by custom order.
