m'afrique modou daybed

Designer: Ron Arad

Modou is the name that Ron Arad wanted to give M’Afrique to the entire collection, dynamic and kinetic like a futuristic fireball, in homage to the blacksmith Modou who worked with him in Dakar. It is Modou who gave him the opportunity to take the snapshot: his prototype. It is Ron Arad who gives Modou the possibility of his work entering the world market. Certainly not an ethnic or "normal" object, but an incredible journey that runs around Africa. Ron Arad and Modou: two iron-makers, two blacksmiths where the differences melt away when the object is created to contaminate two apparently distant worlds. The seating collection is made by weaving the polyethylene thread traditionally used in Africa for fishing nets. Different and original non-approved projects par excellence, entirely handmade in Dakar, Senegal, in the M’Afrique laboratories.
