Description

"An ethnic style livened up by flashy, contemporary, cheerful colours ... As part of the “M'Afrique” project, Patrizia Moroso (artistic director of the eponymous brand) invited artists (designers, architects, photographers) to convey the strength and beauty of Africa through their works. Designers Sebastian Herkner, Patricia Urquiola and Tord Boontje joined in by creating a collection of outdoor furniture inspired by the creative language and culture of Africa. The result is staggering: this collection is at once exuberant, rich in humanity, baroque, colourful and full of vitality. A delight for the eyes and an invitation to travel ... M'Afrique is a perfect synthesis between tradition and modernity: each piece of the collection is handmade by local craftsmen in a Senegalese workshop created by Moroso. The Banjooli bench is made of coloured polyethylene threads, hand-woven on a tubular structure in lacquered steel. The braiding technique used is traditionally found in Africa to make fishing nets. A remarkable piece of craftsmanship that makes each M'Afrique creation a unique piece. The flared shape of the armrests is inspired by the nuptial dance that the male ostrich - banjooli in the Wolof language - performs to seduce the female, spreading his wings to exalt his beauty! This creation's DNA consists of tradition and modernity, innovation and history and form and beauty all at once. Suitable for both outdoor and indoor use. PLEASE NOTE. The pieces in the M'Afrique collection are entirely made by hand. Each item is unique. Any slight variations in colour and braiding should not be considered defects."
