The first collection of furniture exploring, face-to-face interaction between people and its deterioration. Inspired by sustaining this idea of mutuality, the collection uses abstract tactical shaped furniture, to encourage others to configure their own social spaces, with the ambition of changing this narrative.
Kusheda Mensah is a British born Ghanaian designer, based in London. Her love for furniture design and wide-ranging lifestyle pieces began whilst embarking on a bachelor’s degree in print design at the London College of Communication. At the root of her work, exploring and examining how one can create an idyllic, yet fun and functional living environment has always been paramount.
Mensah’s latest project entitled ‘mutual’, was inspired by her reaction to the ever-growing rift social media continues to create between individuals and the way in which we bond. Mensah’s artistic remedy comes in the form of her interlocking modular pieces of furniture, representing the mutuality, connection and closeness shared between humans, as well as the human form itself. Connecting both furniture and promoting better social behaviours.
Mensah showcased her work at the 21st edition of SaloneSatellite, held in Milan.
