Inspired by African mortars used for grinding, Tariku's
Mukecha can be used as a stool or end table
JOMO TARIKU
Springfi eld, Virginia
Wandering through Before We Could Fly, the new Afrofuturist period room at New
York's Metropolitan Museum of Art, one will encounter Jomo Tariku's walnut
veneer Mido chair, a design inspired by the Afro comb made in collaboration
with woodworker David Bohnhoff . Museums are fast becoming resting places for
furniture by the Springfi eld, Virginia-based Tariku, who was born and raised in
Ethiopia. His graceful Nyala chair, which takes the form of an antelope native to
East Africa's Bale Mountains, for example, is now part of the Los Angeles County
Museum's permanent collection, while his curved Ashanti stool, craſt ed from birch
plywood, reinterprets ceremonial seating used in 19th- and 20th-century Ghana.
Tariku, who came to the U.S. to study at the University of Kansas, says his
passion for the arts was nurtured by his late architect uncle and oldest brother.
" From age 6 or 7, I remember being encouraged to draw and paint alongside them, "
he recalls. By middle school, " the margins of my notebooks were litt ered with
drawings of chairs, stools, buildings, cars, and everything a teenager can imagine.
I did not realize it then, but this was my early inkling of the path I was to take as an
industrial designer. "
His pursuit of furniture was shaped by his parents' eclectic tastes, spanning
intricately carved Indonesian and Chinese pieces and minimalist Scandinavian
ones, as well as the summers spent apprenticing with a master painter and
furniture maker. There he was introduced to woodworking, and ever since Tariku
has " loved the versatility of the medium, " he says, not only because it is pliable, but
also because it's a symbol of connection to his homeland. " I aspire to continue the
African tradition of creating objects with embedded meanings while maintaining
their utility, " Tariku explains. At the same time, he wants his work to draw from
stories of African heritage and give people " moments to meditate about our past
and the possibility of our future. "

VALÉRIE LOUIS
Port-au-Prince, Haiti
Valérie Louis was born and raised in Haiti, a " beautiful, challenging country, " she says. Through Yaël & Valérie, the fabric and wallpaper company she founded
in 2018 (Yaël is her teenage daughter), she hopes to illuminate the Caribbean nation's enigmatic identity. Consider the new Le Jacquier collection, which fi nds
inspiration in the leaves of the Haitian breadfruit tree. Past & Connection, the brand's inaugural series, showcases the disparate images of a poised, confi dent Black
woman who resists, protests, commits, accepts, nurtures, and asserts herself in notable roles from past and present. It was sparked by a fi lm Louis watched as a
child on 19th-century fi gure Henriett e Saint Marc, a risk-taking spy for the Haitian revolutionary army. " Her strength and resilience touched me, " recalls Louis.
For Louis, who frequently travels between Florida and Haiti, where the workshops are located, youthful imagination is very much intertwined with Yaël &
Valérie's creations. The Gingerbread collection, for example, which evokes breezy evenings on balconies and light fi ltering through mysterious louvers, " represents
the old houses I looked at when I was going to school, " she explains.
As she deepened her connection to Haiti, Louis was challenged to fi nd fabrics or wallcoverings that captured her Haitian-Caribbean-African heritage. Noting
that absence was her breakthrough moment, when she decided to design her own meaningful patt erns, which are printed solely on natural fi bers like linen and
cott on. All those sketches refl ect her curious nature, too: " The artistic side of everyone comes from this litt le kid inside of us who wants to share a childhood
memory or a feeling. " hd
