Lahmu (Brown)

$ 18,200
  • Description
    Lahmu was one of Discovered project initiated by Wallpaper* magazine & AHEC and exhibited in the Design Museum in London in September 2021.
    The sculptural pieces serve as a side table or stools and together as a bench or as a low sideboard, inspired by bunker architecture. I chose two contrasting woods: one half in American cherry, for its inherent warmth, and one half in red oak, its surface burned with the Japanese burning method called Shou sugi ban.
    The name Lahmu comes from Mesopotamian mythology of a protective deity that was supposed to ward off demons and sickness.

    Sizar Alexis is a Swedish-Iraqi designer that experiments with objects that display a sense of stillness and serenity with strong character through geometrical shapes, this feeling accomplished through the use of raw and inherent beauty of natural materials. Alongside his material driven approach, Sizar brings personal and cultural narratives into his work. In combination with a deep interest in Brutalist esthetics and contextual inspiration from the rich cultural and architectural heritage of ancient Mesopotamia. He aims to explore his own identity and position within the Chaldean diaspora and in the design industry.
    Sizar Alexis was born in Ankawa, just outside the city of Erbil in northern Iraq. His Chaldean roots puts his lineage in a straight line back to 5000 BC in ancient Mesopotamia. In 1997, he moved to Sweden with his family and settled in Eskilstuna. During his studies at Beckmans College of Design, he started to explore his interest in designing objects and furniture for the home. He holds bachelor’s degrees in Engineering (2009) and Fine Arts (2019).
