Tropical Noire

Tropical Noire is a collection of large, interior, sculptural vessels. The pieces are designed by Simone Brewster and have been crafted out of a mix of tulipwood and maple wood employing a combination of traditional hand lathing and machine CNC technology.
Each vessel in this visually impactful collection ranges from 42 cm to 86 cm in height. Inspired by totemic statues and traditional Greek vessels, these objects redolently echo Sub Saharan African sculpture and colonial artifacts. The collection clearly displays Brewster’s signature bold style of both ethnic and architectural elements.
