Drawing inspiration from “The Children of Fogo Island” from the Fogo Process – a film series created by the National Film Board of Canada in the 1960s and 70s in dialogue with Fogo Islanders – Japanese designer Wataru Kumano reimagined the unsteady legs of the stilts used in play by kids on Fogo Island. Made using the off cuts from other furniture, the series plays on the whimsical nature of these traditional toys. The Stilt Series also reflects the architecture of outport Newfoundland, in which structures stand on stilts to adapt to the rocky topography and safeguard against coastal weather.
