La Chance (Fr) 2012
A French elephant
Ambitious new french producers La Chance presents Tembo as part of their premiere collection Jekyll & Hyde. Tembo is a stool made of stacked pieces of wood, metal and cork. This “modern totem” has a playful and bulky aspect recalling children´s toys and African tomtoms (Tembo means elephant in Swahili). Each piece in the collection comes in two versions: the Jekyll version features natural cork, black lacquered mdf, light matte black wood and metal structure, while Hyde is in natural cork, orange, yellow and blue lacquered mdf, light matte green wood and a shiny orange metal structure.
