FISHNET | Fishing is an activity that the Kassena’s have learned during the great famine. Many were forced to go fishing in Ghana.
The Kasséna Soul collection consists of coffee tables and a side table. The functionality of the tables is less prominent because of the unique aesthetic design language. The GOUNGOGA (drum) are the movable elements of the coffee table that serve as a holder or serving tray and simplify the movement of items on the table. By moving the GOUNGOGA yourself, you give a new look and feel to the table and gives shape to a new day in your spiritual world. The best known totem of many Kasséna families is the GNONON (crocodile). The GNONON is shown by the pyramid shapes in the tabletop.
With this collection Louis Bos wants to create awareness to use a table as originally intended. Moving the GOUNGOGA gives the user the freedom to shape
the table himself and brings live at the table.
