Set/3 Dwennimmen Round Nesting Tables

Swahili Modern


  • Featuring beautifully grained teak inset in sturdy metal frames, this set of 3 nesting tables were crafted by artisans in Ghana. Three lost wax brass Dwennimmen symbols adorn each table.

    In the Adinkra symbol system of West Africa, the Dwennimmen is styled after ram's horns. Dwennimmen calls for individuals to remember to balance strength with humility, like the ram who fights with all his might, yet also humbly surrenders to slaughter.

    Size: [Small] 13"D x 18"T; [Medium] 15.5"D x 20"T; [Large] 18"D x 22"T.

  • Ghana produces one of the strongest teak woods available. Teak is highly valued for its durability, water resistance, and attractive graining which makes it suitable for outdoor furniture as well as interior use. Talented artisans in Ghana use this beautifully grained teak as insets in sturdy metal framed tables.
