There are three things that caught my roving eye with this remarkable collection of garden furniture designed by Sebastian Herkner for Moroso..
1. They’re brilliantly inspired by the mating dance of male ostriches – (or ‘banjooli’ in Wolof tongue) – who stretch out their wings to show off to the ladies.
2. They’re produced by African craft weavers using fishing net yarn.
Herkner says, they may be based on birds, but they are human in their perfections and flaws. Mi piace.

Love them! inspiring;
I can’t resist a little bit of colour..and a lot of spice! xxx
me too 🙂
I love this type of weaving, it reminds me of some chairs we used to have in Greece when I was a child. The colours are amazing and the story of the inspiration sounds like magic 🙂
There is something retro about them..I remember woven iron chairs from my childhood holidays in Greece.. xxx
