— Soninke is a buffet of generous proportions with the wings entirely covered by a texture obtained combining the slats that are used to shield furniture during the lacquering process. After being used several times, these slats, which assume a characteristic striped pattern, are normally discarded.
Upcycling is the starting point of the project, but the end result is a layered-reading furniture.
The colorful geometric pattern created by the woods that cover the wings call to mind the typical African decorative motifs used to paint the walls of the houses. Soninke is the name of a major African language.
Besides, looking at the violent colors of the slats, we notice that they are often poured, sprayed, splattered, suggesting a much more visual world, close to urban street art.
