- Kubaka -
Kubaka is a furniture line inspired by Rwanda, developing a local luxury vocabulary. The collection is made of three pieces. A wall-table, a bed-table and a lamp.
Rwanda has amazing wood-workers; but still most of the furnitures are imported. We believe it's possible to use the Rwandan craftsmanship and the local culture to develop a new design vocabulary.
We merged local scaffolding techniques and vernacular knowledge. The result is fresh and modern furnitures, rooted in the Rwandan context.
90 % of the materials are sourced locally. We develop partnership with local craftsmen in Rwanda.

We teamed-up with Local Carpenters and Women Cooperatives. We shares and exchanged with them to understand what can be design-wise limitations and opportunities. The inspiration of the Kubaka line is the vernacular scaffolding.
We are using local wood and hand-woven traditional baskets. Kubaka is true to George Periclès vision of design : empowering communities and offering high-quality and innovative projects to the users.
Kubaka is the expression of a new path for Rwandan design. Bold, Modern and rooted in the country's culture, by blending modernity and traditions.
