The Banjooli Chair by Sebastian Herkner is a contemporary take on a traditionally African design aesthetic. Joining the designs of Tord Boontje, Ayse Birsel and Bibi Seck, Patricia Urquiola and Dominique Pétot, this vividly woven chair is the newest addition to the M’Afrique collection.

The seating collection is made using intricately woven fishing net threads that are handcrafted to create practical furnishings. Displayed in bright black and yellow and red and green combinations, the Banjooli Chair by Sebastian Herkner is a modern translation of tradition.

The chic seater features an authentic aesthetic that encourages ethnic craftsmanship without losing its sense of modernity. Named after the Banjooli mating dance of male ostriches, these conceptual chair designs are a nod to the culture and history of Africa. Stats for Vividly Woven Seating Trending: Older & Average
