In 2017 the 1+1+1 team was invited by the Icelandic Aurora Foundation to work with Sierra Leonean crafts people in order to create new working possibilities for the locals.
We had the pleasure to work with the skilled and loveable basket weavers of Bramatown on the lamp prototypes shown here. The first two lamps are the Aalto+Aalto originals, and the last one is one of the 27 mixes crated with the 1+1+1 concept together with Petra Lilja (SWE) and Hugdetta (ISL). The project was a collaboration between the 1+1+1 team and various local professionals working with different materials and techniques such as wood carwing, tailoring, ceramic throwing and textile weawing.
