Umbrella Sedge Series / Decoration & accessories

Umbrella Sedge Series
Umbrella Sedge Series

The series of products, Kamaro’an, is created by the collaboration between designers and the Gangkou tribe located along the Hualien coast. The designers collaborate with the aboriginal craftspeople and community to translate the locally available material and their traditional craft into inspiring designs- a collection of umbrella sedge. They turn the umbrella sedge into a very fine and compelling material with a unique process. The design attempts to combine the authentic material with mass-produced metal frames to create a collection of home décor accessories - lightings and desktop objects.
