We explore the world for human heritage artistry as a rich and dynamic source of inspiration. We bring this artistry to life through contemporary lifestyle objects.
SoShiro celebrates skills, traditions and craftsmanship from different cultures through collections of furniture and accessories; drawing from a wide spectrum of artistic disciplines and through an amazing network of collaborations with emerging and established artists and artisans.
Our pieces are functional works of art that live to tell stories – bringing to life the heritage and spirit of cultural artistic endeavours – created to enrich contemporary lifestyles.
The Pok collection celebrates the artistry of beading within the Pokot community.
Belonging to North West Kenya, the Pok collection is inspired by the Pokot women who make complex and vibrant beadwork necklaces offering them a rare opportunity for creative expression and economic independence.
Our Pok collection furniture and accessories evoke the form, splendour and intricacy of the beaded ornaments created by the Pokot women with the addition of a modern twist!
We have introduced new materials in the form of semi-precious stones and colourful marble gems which have been carefully integrated into the beautifully crafted Pok collection pieces.
Celebrating heritage arts, designed for a contemporary lifestyle.
