Celeste by Christophe de Sousa

Inspired by a countrywoman, the Celeste side table is a strong character that carries grapes in a basket on her shoulders.

It is composed of a wicker basket or a cork top that rests on a marble cylinder finished off with a half-sphere. Thus, in an apparent balance challenge, the two geometric shapes are joined into a distinctive design that pays tribute to the farmworkers.

Produced in the north of Portugal, the wicker basket is born from the hands of one of the local basket makers who weaves these vegetable fibres.

This project has been longlisted in the furniture design category of Dezeen Awards 2021.
