Movement on the Ground
Movement on the Ground responds to the humanitarian crises affecting the men, women and children forced from their homes by climate change, poverty and war.
Operating primarily on the island of Lesvos – arrival point for tens of thousands of people as they flee from armed conflict, poverty and persecution - Movement on the Ground works with large and small charities, identifying need and providing structural, logistical and practical support.
From spotters searching for boats as they approach the coast and rescue boats guiding people safely ashore, to medical stations and mobile doctors, Movement on the Ground helps provide safety, shelter, heat, food, water and medical aid, getting the items that are needed to the right place.
Michael Sodeau’s Casper is crafted from recycled cork, the stools have two finger holes so they may easily be moved, these holes add character to an otherwise simple silhouette and an anthropomorphic touch that led to the collaboration with Movement on the Ground.
The rounded base allows for some movement and the concave seat adds to the comfort. Available in a natural or dark finish. Whether used individually or en masse Casper has a certain charm.
