Designer Sebastian Herkner
The shape of the chair, and particularly the armrests, is inspired by the mating dance of male ostriches –banjooli in the Wolof language- who stretch out their wings to show off their beauty to the female. Banjooli is part of M’Afrique, a range of chairs conceived by the designer and produced by African craft weavers using the yarn of fishing nets. The designs are all different and original, like their names. Hand-woven, they are human in their perfections and flaw.
Painted steel base and colored polyethylene threads handwoven; on PVC glides.
