Material Polished Brass
Inspired by the Kwanie Nkrumah Presidential Library, Ghana
“Life is a full circle, widening until it joins the circle motions of the infinite.”
The brass KNK centerpiece draws inspiration from the Kwame Nkrumah Presidential Library that rises near Lake Volta, in Ghana. The project was donated to Samia Nkrumah, the daughter of Kwame Nkrumah, who led Ghana to independence in 1957. Today, Samia chairs the Convention People’s Party, the political party founded by her father.
This library is intended to be a knowledge hub and will serve as a catalyst for society and a driving force for social innovation. The three-level centerpiece is made of polished brass and recalls the external architecture of the building. For every level, the arched strips are welded one by one to the round base and then polished, creating a precious centerpiece.
