Description

The comb is inspired by a girl named Jacqueline who named her skin tone Caramel Maccichato after her favourite drink at Starbucks in attempt to transcend her heritage and to just be. The shifting colors and wavy directions of the comb are all symbols that during the designprocess came to represent mixed race identities.

Longer teeth allows the comb to sweep through curly and wavy hair with a much smoother motion.

Made out of resin and frosted acrylic the Caramel Macchiato comb is one of eight combs in the Afropicks collection.

Profile Photo
Simon Skinner
Simon Skinner is a young Swedish designer based in Stockholm. He graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Industrial Design from Konstfack University 2018. His work offers new ways to approach norms and cultures in a sustainable way. Playfulness and curiosity is the core in Simon Skinners approach to design. As a mixed race Swede with Afro-Caribbean roots Simon Skinner is inspired to investigate the identity among people living in between different cultures at the same time. This often becomes a fusion where values, functions and expressions are being mixed in to everyday objects. His latest project Afropicks (winner of the Young Swedish Design Awards) highlights the need of afro hair combs and puts the symbolic value of black power and beauty into a Swedish context, also questioning the perception of ”Swedishness”. Now represented at Nationalmuseum.
