We have been collaborating with Guru Films over this past year as we are set to remodel their Kingston offices, below are a few pieces from DOXA's Kingston Collection, inspired by my many trips to the lovely island as well as our conversations with the Guru himself, Mr. Ras Kassa. The collection is made up of traditional British Colonial elements, African influences and modern furnishings made of materials reflective of its local agriculture and natural resources, such as coconut and aluminum (which reference not only the zinc roof homes throughout the countryside but also the island's bauxite industry).
