Tony Whitfield


"Socabot" rocking chair, part of designer Tony Whitfield's Red Wing & Chambers LC2000 collection, which features sustainably harvested rainforest materials. Developed at Liana Cane Lab in Georgetown, Guyana. Constructed of steel and liana cane, 28"h x 34"w x 48"d. How nice would it be to lounge on this beauty (with some padding, of course) on the terrace of a tropical modern, boutique hotel in, say, Robertsport?

Great find! I gotta post this on my blog of whimsy "the epedestrian". Not that this is whimsical, it's just very exciting to see black designers!!!!

Kiss,

Isn't it?! They're out there-- and many of them will soon be right here! My excitement for this project, which was on the back burner for far too long, is visceral. And I intend to honor it-- particularly because I know I'm not the only one thirsting!

がんばります!
