The Senegal O-Chair was launched in 2016 at Salone del Mobile furniture fair.
Pre-order now for delivery in September
The idea for the Senegal-O chair came from a dreamcatcher that my daughter Evie had made for my birthday. I liked the pattern and that it could be made with such simple means. It reminded me of the possibilities we have in Senegal: to weave by hand on a simple fame. I imagined the circle becoming a very large backrest, which would surround you like a halo when you sit against it.
