Fellah is a hollow wicker stool for storage and diverse levels of seeding.
The individual baskets can be stacked in various combinations either directly on the floor or placed in the stool frame. Each basket has removable cushioned seating. The strong combination of woven rattan and bended wood maintain a hollow construction which allow room for storage inside the baskets.
Fellah is designed by Pia Angela Rasmussen & Sia Hurtigkarl Degel
Exhibited @ Ukurent 2020

The design is inspired by the silhouette of fellah – the female farmers of the ancient Egypt often visualized carrying large rounded earthenware on her head. The rounded pottery had an efficient cooling effect on liquids and was placed in stands when not in use.
The project is made in collaboration with local Egyptian craftsmen and aim to translate ancient Egypt culture into a contemporary design.
