Notes from the Archive
: The Zezuru chair was designed as part of a larger series featuring both a new material and a new direction for Mabeo. Comprised of a chair, cabinet and coffee table, the collection designed by Inès Bressand is the final result of an ongoing collaborative process between the wood craftsmen and women working at Mabeo, and the metal craftsmen in Botswana.
Marrying wood with galvanized metal, each object is not only made from the two distinct materials, but from two very distinct craft techniques. Hand cut, hammered, shaped, and folded galvanized metal sheet components are inserted into or suspended on the wood components of each piece. Pairing these reflective galvanized metal components with smoothly handcrafted panga panga wood forms results in harmonious furniture forms.
