Sustainability Aspects: Using Senegalese workforce making a lightweight chair

Banjooli chair

Sebastian Heckner was inspired by the dancing of mating ostriches (Banjooli in the Wolof language) in eastern Africa when designing the Banjooli chair made from Japanese fishing yarn and produced in Senegal. The cheerful chair is sustainable by it lightweight and the use of the local Senegalese craftsmen. Produced for Moroso
